You will never see something so amazing, beautiful, and breathtaking as the Laguna Grands bioluminescent bay! It is a "hike" to get there, you have to be tolerant of total darkness on your way through the channel, but it's all a fun part of the...More

Either we had really bad luck or the bioluminescent Bay is totally overrated. We went to the bay in January and were told that the place had turned really cold and the microorgranisms responsible for luminescence were behaving oddly. All we saw was some minor...More

We chose to kayak into the bay with a group from Peniel Access. Our guides, Omar and Jonathan, were terrific. We were all amazed at the wonder of how these small creatures can create such an interesting phenomenon.

The guides were great. The trip out there by kayak was beautiful. A little tough to see the bioluminescents.

If it were me, I'd rent a car, drive to Fajardo to do the bio bay, then drive back, return the car, and stay the night in San Juan... Embassy Suites or wherever. If you drive back in the morning you have to deal with rush... More

There were more than two groups that ran the tours. We went through Ecotours. It's the same service regardless of who you use. Go with the lowest price you can find.
