La Parguera is a fishing village in the town of Lajas, Puerto Rico, know for its bioluminiscent bay, and world class diving.

Get in[edit]

Located on the Caribbean side of Puerto Rico just south of Mayaguez.

Get around[edit]

Public transportation in Puerto Rico is sparse. Car is recommended for transportation.


The bioluminescent bay at La Parguera is the main attraction in this small fishing village. The luminescent effect in the bay is the result of a permanent population of tiny micro-organisms called Dinoflagellates. These animals produce a chemical spark of light when disturbed in the water. They can produce striking effects of green and white sparkles that can only be seen at night.







Get out[edit]

La Parguera is just 20 minutes from the historic lighthouse at Cabo Rojo. Or, head further North and explore the surf towns of Rincon, Isabela and Aguadilla.
