Night Tour of the Manialtepec Lagoon

we'll pick you up from your hotel in Puerto Escondido at around 7:30 pm, and make our way to the Manialtepec Lagoon. After an hour and a half, and with the last rays of sunlight disappearing, you'll discover one of the natural world's most impressive sights.

This lagoon is famous for its spectacular bioluminescence - a unique effect whereby the microorganisms living in the lake naturally give off light at the slightest movement. You can swim in the water, and upon contact with your body these organisms will glow - seeming as though it's your body itself producing the spectacular effect!

When you get off the boat, you'll spend a little over an hour in this magical environment, relaxing and enjoying the evening to the sounds of nature all around you. A perfect experience to calm body and mind.

Then we'll head back to the hotels in Puerto Escondido, arriving at around 10 pm.
