Take a Bioluminescent Bay Kayaking Tour
Be sure to book an excursion out to Bio Bay to witness one of the most beautiful natural phenomenons on Earth. Bio Bay is home to millions of bioluminescent organisms, which emit bluish light when agitated, and are quite stunning against the backdrop of the black Caribbean sea at night.
Tours leave in the early evening with a qualified instructor, so kayak your way through mangrove channels to the glowing waters!
Take a Short Flight to Culebra Island

The two must-see beaches on Culebra are Flamenco and Tamarindo. Oh, and you’ve got make sure to grab a drink at Mamacita’s!
Fans of wildlife flock to the island’s bird sanctuaries and turtle-nesting sites for a glimpse of rare fauna. The island also draws hikers, scuba divers, nature photographers, and regular beach-goers. Some of the beaches are even protected as Marine Wildlife Reserves.
Take a Dive
Since Puerto Rico is surrounded by the ocean, it serves as a great diving destination for avid and expert divers alike! Take an excursion out to Desesheo Island in the west, the Caves at Shaks beach, the Wall in the South, or Mona Island!
You’ll find incredible coral reefs and over 700 fish species that call Puerto Rico’s reefs, mangroves and seagrass environments home!
