  • Puerto Escondido: Bioluminescence Night Spectacle

    1. Puerto Escondido: Bioluminescence Night Spectacle

    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.

  • Puerto Escondido: Horse Ride to the Atotonilco Hot Springs

    2. Puerto Escondido: Horse Ride to the Atotonilco Hot Springs

    After pickup in Puerto Escondido, drive for 30 minutes to the town of San José Manialtepec, appreciating the local culture as you go. Once in town, choose your own horse and start the adventure toward the hot springs. Ride with a guide who will give you all the best practices for handling the horse so you don't need to be an expert. Venture through the river and admire the local flora and fauna. Marvel at the beautiful colorful birds, and see some fields with local and organic fruit. After 1.5 hours of horse riding, arrive at the hot springs. Take a dip in the relaxing thermal waters in pools of varying heat intensity. Once you've had a refreshing bath, ride your horse back to San José Manialtepec again, from where you'll head back to Puerto Escondido for drop-off at your hotel.
