La Parguera, Lajas

#4 of 16 in Neighborhoods in Puerto Rico
A glowing bay filled with twinkling water, surrounded by charming inns and dwellings, La Parguera dazzles at nighttime. The water at one of the world’s few bioluminescent bays thrives with dinoflagellates, which light up when disturbed, creating a captivating aquatic light show. Boat trips out to the bay allow you to see the sparkle up close. Alternatively, you can stay on the shore of the fishing village, where you can look out, beer in hand, and admire thr rare spectacle. While the phenomenon takes place every night, it's best observed on a moonless night. During the day, meet friendly locals, embark on some great hikes nearby, go bird-watching, or enjoy a popular selection of water sports.

  • Here are some photos from my holiday to The Parguera 2019! I visited the bay and Mata la Gata. Cost per person $10.00 each trip! The bay doesn't come up in pictures, but that night I went at 8:30pm and it looked tremendous! The cay Mata la Gata is quite well maintained, although the baths suck too much. You're warned! Tremendous experience! Some pics of my trip to La Parguera 2019! I visit the Bio Bay and Mata la Gata. Price per person, each trip is $10.00. Unfortunately no pics of the bio bay, but recommended going late on night. I went close to 8:30pm and it looked amazing! Cayo Mata la gata was clean, but bathrooms smell really bad. You are warned! Amazing experience!
