Did You Know?
Under the surface of Puerto Rico’s three bioluminescent bays live thousands of single-celled microorganisms called dinoflagellates. When these little guys are disturbed, they turn beautiful greens and blues creating a unique natural phenomenon.
Mosquito Bay, declared the brightest bio bay in the world in 2006, is the most popular. Though it went dark after Hurricane Maria, it has returned even brighter.
