Embark on an adventure to a bioluminescent bay on this trip from San Juan. See the hot springs, feast on a hot dinner in a local restaurant, and visit a sand bar, before heading out to the bay and swimming in the luminous water. After pickup from your hotel, relax on the drive to the southwest and the first stop at the hot springs. From there you will dine on fresh fish, chicken, or vegetable tacos at a local restaurant.

At the bay, jump in the water to really experience this unique phenomenon, which is a true feast for the eyes. Enjoy some free time to swim and play in the water and admire the striking glow of the microorganisms that surround you. At the end of an unforgettable day, dry off on the boat then sit back and relax on the journey to your accommodation.

This Bio Bay tour was truly exceptional. From the comfortable van ride, during which we were provided with insightful historical facts, to the first stop at the Hot Springs, the experience was thoroughly enjoyable. Although the absence of massage services at the spring due to staff breaks was a minor disappointment, the relief it provided to my knees was greatly appreciated. The included dinner was satisfactory, albeit not outstanding; however, the availability of alternative options for purchase mitigated this concern. The trip to the sandbar was a highlight, offering breathtaking views and an experience I wished could have lasted longer. However, the true standout of the tour was the Bioluminescent Bay. The warm water and mesmerizing display of dinoflagellates illuminating the water created an unforgettable spectacle. Even the return journey was tranquil, with many of us finding the journey so relaxing that we drifted off to sleep. This is an experience that will never forget!!!

We had such an amazing time doing this!! It was truly the cherry on top of a perfect vacation! Steven was an amazing tour guide with plenty of local knowledge, and our boat captains were so helpful and passionate about what they do!! The springs were nice, the food was DELICIOUS, and the glow of the water as we swam around in the dark was a once in a lifetime experience.

We loved all of it but honestly, didn’t care for the hot springs itself…. we were very underwhelmed. Sorry. Nothing to do with the tour, just the venue. The bio-bay and captains were fabulous, we loved our guide, Cruz.

The guide was personable and knowledgeable about the area. It was a fun experience and our group was happy.

Absolutely amazing experience!!!! Would definitely do it again with the same guides they were great.
