Full description
Enjoy a pickup after sunset from your hotel lobby in Puerto Escondido. Head towards the Manialtepec lagoon in the darkness of night.  Marvel at a spectacular natural show while crossing the lagoon in a boat with the help of a local instructor. Experience the delightful reaction of how millions of microorganisms begin to illuminate the water as you swim or while you touch the water through the boat. Witness this rare event as there are only 2 lagoons in Mexico that have this spectacular and beautiful phenomenon.  Passing midnight and after enjoying this remarkable experience, you will be taken back to your hotel in Puerto Escondido.

We bought the package super expensive, at 650 per person, we asked the local guides in hidden port and their price was 300 per person. The tour does not last what it says in the description of the way to get to the lake is 20 min and in the lake we were only 30 min, it does not last the 2:30 that it says in the description. The truck they took us in was very dirty

Leider war kein "blaues Wasser" zu sehen. Wenn man die Hand im Wasser geschüttelt hat, war ein leichtes weißes Glitzern zu sehen. Mehr nicht! Es sind zwei Personen ins Wasser gesprungen und um ihnen herum war ein leichter heller Schatten zu sehen. Jedoch kein leuchtendes Plankton. Sehr schade, leider den falschen Zeitpunkt ausgewählt. Das sollte in der Beschreibung berücksichtigt werden und vor allem, dass es 3 Farben gibt: blau, weiß und grün. Der Guide hat erklärt, dass seit der letzten Regensaison die Biolumineszens weiß ist und aktuell kaum zu sehen ist, da es sich um Baby Plankton handelt.
