Full description

Discover the beauty of the Zapotalito Lagoon at night with this boat tour with pickup and drop-off from Puerto Escondido in an airconditioned van. Venture out in search of bioluminescent life and enjoy nature's light show. Experience this wonder up close with a swim.

Hop aboard a spacious and comfortable van that picks you up at your doorstep in Puerto Escondido. Relax on the 1.25 hour drive north to the Zapotalito Lagoon. After arriving to the lagoon board a boat and set off in search of the bioluminescent phenomenon.

Locate the bioluminescent creatures and stop to swim with the help of a life vest. Be amazed at how the lights pop on with every move you make and how they get stuck on your clothes or hands for a while.

Appreciate the incredible beauty of the night sky as you gaze up at constellations and stars from this secluded place with low light pollution. Return to the dock and head back to your accommodation in Puerto Escondido at the end of your tour.

The contact a few hours before was very good, transfers, deals. One of the negative things is that they did not give us security information to board the boat or how long it would take to get to the place since the road was somewhat long and something external that the bioluminescence could not be fully appreciated. The rest is fine, thank you very much.
