So similar to others I have split this review up into two pieces. The first is the overall experience of kayaking and the bio luminescent bay. That was good but not great. You arrive to a small marina on the edge of a mangrove forest...More

This review is separated into two sections. 1, the biobay kayaking at farjado actually deserves 4 stars. We enjoyed the kayaking through the mangroves and then into the lagoon. The experience was mystical and peaceful. I enjoyed it more for that than the bioluminescence. Read...More

My husband and I did this excursion last night. From our hotel, it was over an hour drive, which we were aware of. The group is separated into couples, so if you're doing this trip solo, beware of who you're partnered with. The kayaking is...More

The Bio-luminescent Kayaking Adventure was a lot of fun. There was work involved with two people per kayak and traveling through the pitch dark Mango groves. As long as the two of you work together as instructed it was not that difficult. My friend and...More

First, the good. We loved seeing the bioluminescent bay. It was really cool. I would've loved the opportunity to paddle around for a little while once we got there. We were told to gather in the middle and to hold the kayak beside you. To...More
