Lighthouse
“Bioluminescence is one of planet Earth’s best-kept secrets. Tiny organisms make the water glow at night. They found the perfect place to live in the Fajardo Bio Bay. Stir the water of the Bioluminescent Bay and lots of sparkles will activate. Glowing trails will swirl and flow with the water. The Fajardo Bio Bay Kayak Tour feels like discovering a whole new world. This bioluminescent bay is part of a nature reserve. The entrance is a beautiful mangrove channel. All along the way you are surrounded by protected life, and at night, the stars fill the sky!”

Neighbourhood
“Ocean Park is a tranquil coastal neighborhood between the hotel-heavy tourism zones of Condado and Isla Verde, peppered with restaurants and shops just outside a gated residential area. One tucked-away sanctuary in high demand is the 19-room Dreamcatcher, known for its vegetarian meals (with some ingredients picked from the courtyard papaya, acerola and avocado trees) and inviting courtyards with hammocks and fountains. ”

“This is cultural place where you will find excellent Puerto Rican food and a tropical ambiant. The food is exquisite, the people are friendly and they also feature music and dances that relate to the Puerto Rican Culture. You may need to ask when they have live music in order to fully enjoy all the entertainment this restaurant offers. ”

Tapas Restaurant

“Red Flamboyan is the place for authentic Puerto Rican cuisine. We recommend the Pescado del Dia al Estilo del Chef - the fish of the day in a creamy creole sauce. And if they are offering coconut creme brulee for dessert... well, then you've hit the jackpot!”
