Bioluminescence can be found in many places all over the world, but there are only five bioluminescent bays in the world. Lucky enough, three of them are in Puerto Rico. These are the Fajardo Bioluminescent Bay, La Parguera in Lajas, and Mosquito Bay in Vieques. A bio bay is a fragile and rare ecosystem that allows tiny dinoflagellates to develop and glow when the water is disturbed. The glow is quite surreal to witness! The Mosquito Bay in Vieques is so bright, that it was officially introduced in the Guinness Book of World Records 2008 as the brightest bioluminescent bay ever recorded. If you're interested in going, we recommend you book in advance since these types of activities are guided tour groups.
