Phosphorescent Bay
Phosphorescence isn’t a phenomenon limited to Puerto Rico, but the island’s phosphorescent bays (there are three of them, one in Fajardo, one in La Parguera, and one on Vieques) are easily accessible with tour operators and are a memorable experience for visitors who have never experienced this magical nocturnal phenomenon. The bays’ depth and warmth create the perfect conditions for microscopic dinoflagellates to flourish, and these tiny creatures emit light that looks like the stars in the sky slipped straight into the water. You’ll kayak through a mangrove channel to reach the bay, guided by an expert kayaker who will tell you more about the Lucky visitors might see fish flashing by like neon streaks. Leave your camera in your hotel room; you can’t capture the phosphorescence without special equipment.
