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.

Huatulco: Nature Park with Fruit Tasting & Optional Zipline

2. Huatulco: Nature Park with Fruit Tasting & Optional Zipline

Upon arrival, you will be offered fruit water infusions and a variety of regional, locally harvested fresh fruits to taste. Then follow the trail into the park to discover waterfalls, rivers and around 20 thousand different species of plants and exotic flowers. Located 260 meters above sea level in the Oaxacan mountains, you will find yourself surrounded by the diverse flora and fauna of the park. Read the illustrated signs along the path to learn more about the nature around you and local, organic fruit farming. After your walk, refresh with a cooling dip in the Magdalena River and admire the "Cascada de la Campana" waterfall. This is an experience for all five senses. If you’re up for a little more adventure, select the Premium Ziplining option for bird’s eye views as you fly through the park. There are 5 Ziplines separated by platforms built into the trees ranging from 50-100 meters in height with a total length of 2.5 kilometres.

3. From Puerto Escondido: Birdwatching on a Boat

Start the tour with pick up from the lobby of your hotel in Puerto Escondido. Then, set off on an adventure to Manialtepec Lagoon in 'Las Negras' town where a boat will be waiting for you. Climb aboard and begin exploring the lagoon and its wonderful natural refuge of migratory and local birds. Navigate through the dense vegetation so you can see the different kinds of mangroves. After 2 hours of sailing, reach the end of the lagoon where you can observe the union of the river, the sea and the lagoon - an impressive view. Next, sail up the Manialtepec River until you will arrive at Puerto Suelo, a beautiful beach where you can disembark to take a walk, swim or enjoy a delicious meal in the palapas. After approximately 1.5 hours of exploring here, take the boat to go back to the community. Here, a van will be waiting to return you to Puerto Escondido.

Picked up at hotel on time. Only the 4 of us on trip. Lovely ride on lake and river seeing many different birds. Guides were really helpful and had books to show us the birds in different languages. Stopped at fishing boats who showed us their catches. Beach was huge and deserted. Massive surf. Just had a coffee and coco..not great. Superb trip, highly recommend
