La Parguera is one of Puerto Rico’s top nature tourist attractions, mostly due to its famous bioluminescent or phosphorescent bay (click to watch video). Millions of tiny micro-organisms called dino-flagellates glow in the dark in this bay when the water is disturbed. On moonless nights, one can even see fish and if lucky, manta rays glowing under water while moving.
So you get on this small boat with this guy called "Tito." As you meet him, you are instantly charmed by his charisma. All of a sudden, Mr. Tito feels an urge to dive. He senses sea cucumbers down below. He disappears. He goes down, way under water. As he comes out, he will surprise you with living sea creatures he felt inspired to share with you.
La Parguera is the only place on the island where you can find “Las Casetas“. Las Casetas are small wooden houses built on stilts in the water on the coast of La Parguera. They range in size from small one room houses to two story houses with 5 rooms and a boat garage. These houses are not accessible by land and can only be reached by boat. They are often brightly painted.
