Full description
Enjoy a pickup after sunset from your hotel lobby in Puerto Escondido. Head towards the Manialtepec lagoon in the darkness of night.  Marvel at a spectacular natural show while crossing the lagoon in a boat with the help of a local instructor. Experience the delightful reaction of how millions of microorganisms begin to illuminate the water as you swim or while you touch the water through the boat. Witness this rare event as there are only 2 lagoons in Mexico that have this spectacular and beautiful phenomenon.  Passing midnight and after enjoying this remarkable experience, you will be taken back to your hotel in Puerto Escondido.
