Hi Puerto Rico travellers,
just wanted to give a heads up about the bioluminescent bay at Farjado.
We went on Tuesday 12 November and there was a sudden unexpected drop in the number of organisms, there was no glow or sparkles. If you looked REALLY hard and used your imagination you could maybe make out a couple of tiny sparks. the guides said its about 0.5% of the usual brightness.
we were all terribly disappointed to have seen nothing. the tour companies are obviously also very worried about this new situation. they dont know what has caused this sudden drop but they said they are going to send some samples. i havent heard anymore updates.
our tour company told us of the situation before we went and offered a full refund or to do just night kayaking at 50% of the price which we did and enjoyed anyway.
just wanted to give people a heads up in case the biobay was their main attraction to visit puerto rico.
if you know of any news or updates about the bioluminescent bays in farjardo or puerto rico please post and let us know!
