Bioluminescent Bay
Kayak through the hidden mangrove channels in the evening & observe this rare phenomenon. The planktons emit tiny dots of green lights when you touch the water. See yourself glow in the dark. A truly unique experience - highly recommended! My personal experience is that the Vieques Bio Bay tour is fantastic, but the Fajardo tour, during some times, can be overcrowded and not near as good an experience. Tour Info on Fajardo and Vieques Bio Bay tours! You should also check the moon light calendar link!
El Yunque
The rain forest is open all year-round & it's an excellent way to re-connect with the nature. We recommend the La Mina Fall trail where you can hike half-way & take a dip at the La Mina Waterfall. The trail is about 1 hour each way. If you would like to ascend to the top, prepare 3 - 4 hours for each way.
