Things to Do in Puerto Rico

Puerto Rico is a Caribbean island and has been a territory of the US since 1898. From the world’s brightest bioluminescent bays to the El Yunque tropical rainforest, Puerto Rico is all about its tropical beaches, waterfalls, mountains, and the many outdoor activities that it has to offer. Kayaking, snorkeling, SUP, and taking tours of the beautiful rainforest and Bio Bay are some of the many outdoor activities that attract adventurers to Puerto Rico. Bioluminescent tours in Puerto Rico are offered at Mosquito Bay in Vieques, Laguna Grande in the northeast in Fajardo, and La Parguera in the south-west in Lajas. 

Bioluminescent Tour Puerto Rico

A bioluminescent bay is unique and known as the sea that glows at night, one of the earth’s most stunning sights. Bioluminescence is light emitted by a living organism. Large numbers of these microorganisms emit light,and make these bioluminescent bays glow at night. Fireflies are also known to be bioluminescent by nature. 

The world has just five bioluminescent bays with concentrations of bioluminescence high enough to be readily seen. Three of these bioluminescent bays are located on the island of Puerto Rico, so they are a big draw for visitors. Mosquito Bay is situated in Vieques, Laguna Grande lies in the north-east in Fajardo, and La Parguera can be discovered in the south-west in Lajas.

Puerto Rico bioluminescent bay kayaking tours, snorkeling rentals, bio bay kayak rentals, and other outdoor adventure tours and adventures can easily be booked on TripOutside.

Water Sports in Puerto Rico 

Kayaking, snorkeling and scuba diving in Puerto Rico allows adventurers to experience the island’s mangroves, rivers, marine life, and, above everything else, its bioluminescent bays. There are many places to explore Puerto Rico’s beautiful waters – here are some of our top recommendations.

Fajardo Kayaking

Fajardo is a region in eastern Puerto Rico and is home to one of the five bio bays in the world, the Laguna Grande bioluminescent bay. The crystal clear water makes it an ideal location for kayaking and snorkeling, especially at night to experience the bioluminescence. The Fajardo bio bay tour is an incredible adventure. It takes you through the mangrove forests and lets you experience the spectacular “sparkling in the dark” bioluminescent water, also known as the Bio Bay.

San Juan Snorkeling and Scuba Diving

San Juan is the capital of Puerto Rico and is situated on the Atlantic Ocean, on the northern coast of the island. It is quite a popular destination for water sports like snorkeling and scuba diving. Its rugged shorelines, underwater views, lush mountains, and amazing marine wildlife including orcas, seals, eagles, sea lions, make it the experience of a lifetime.  Some top spots for snorkeling and scuba diving are Condado lagoon and Isla Verde Beach.  

Rincon Snorkeling & Diving

Rincon has some awesome snorkeling sites, but one of the most incredible spots is the Tres Palmas Marine Reserve.  The reserve was created in 2004 to protect the extensive coral and the surf that breaks over them.  The reserve features beautiful sandy beaches and rich underwater biodiversity perfect for snorkeling and scuba diving.  Fish that inhabit this underwater paradise include parrotfish, blue tangs, hogfish, squirrelfish, butterfly fish, and angelfish. You may also see the occasional stingray, tarpon and turtle swim by to check you out. Look in the crevices for eels, crabs and lobsters.

Culebra Kayaking

Kayaking Puerto Rico offers a Culebra kayak tour that takes you from Tamarindo beach to Flamenco beach. You will kayak through turquoise water and craggy shorelines to the world-famous Flamenco Beach.  Enjoy 2 sessions of snorkeling at the Luis Peña Reserve. Watch the turtles swimming along with you while you snorkel through the beautiful coral gardens.

How to Get to Puerto Rico

By Flight: The island’s international gateway is the Luis Muñoz Marín International Airport in San Juan (SJU). Also, the regional airports at Aguadilla (on the northwestern coast), Ponce (on the southern coast), and Mayaguez (on the western coast)  also have direct flights from the US mainland.

By Water: Puerto Rico’s ferry services connect with the US Virgin Islands and the Dominican Republic. These are also one of the popular ways to get into Puerto Rico.

Best Time to Visit Puerto Rico

The best time to visit Puerto Rico is from mid-April to June, just after the peak tourist season that goes from December to April and just before the rainy summer. The spring weather is also very comfortable, with most days only reaching the mid-80s. If you want to witness bioluminescent kayaking in Puerto Rico in its full glory, then plan a visit on a full moon night.
