Feel the magic of the bioluminescent bay

Located about an hour’s drive from Rincon, Puerto Rico is La Parguera Bioluminescent Bay. One of three bioluminescent bays in Puerto Rico, La Parguera glows due to the presence of micro-organisms called dinoflagellates which emit light when the water is agitated. Numerous tours of the bioluminescent bay are offered, including a boat ride/swimming tour through Parguera Eco Tours. During the boat ride, the science behind the bioluminescence of the water is discussed in detail, and passengers have the opportunity to swim in the bay, making La Parguera the only bioluminescent bay in Puerto Rico where swimming is allowed.

Whale watch on an evening cruise

Rincon, Puerto Rico offers several local sunset cruise charters where you and your partner can view the island and the ocean in all of its golden splendor. January to March is also peak whale watching season in Puerto Rico, as humpback whales migrate through the warm tropical waters off of Rincon, making Valentine’s Day perfect for an evening cruise. Taino Divers offers a sunset cruise complete with local beer, rum punch, ice and other beverages.
