Bioluminescent Beach in Costa Rica
Bioluminescent Kayak Tour in Costa Rica

One of the most spectacular night tours you can experience while in Costa Rica is the Bioluminescent Kayak Tour.

See the plankton glow in the dark from your first paddle stroke it’s a unique experience not to be missed while in Costa Rica!

As the night grows dark, step into your very comfortable kayak and get ready for a personal encounter with this remarkable phenomenon.

There’s 2 areas in Costa Rica where you can enjoy this amazing and unique tour, one of them is at Punta Cuchillos, Nicoya Peninsula in Guanacaste, and the other is at Puerto Jimenez, inside the Golfo Dulce Bay.

What’s Glowing in the Ocean?

 Bioluminescent plankton floats under the surface and flash brightly when disturbed, possibly to scare off or distract predators. 

 Sea sparkle is made up of critters so tiny that a single drop of water can contain thousands of them, you can actually see them with a microscope or even a strong magnifying glass.
