Last night was my first time kayaking at night, and guess were I went?  The Bioluminicent Bay in Fajardo known world wide, approximately 7 documented in the world and the most known are from Puerto Rico.  At first I was a bit nervous just to think about kayaking in the Bay at darkness, because of and other experience I had with Moises the manati.... but that's another one of my adventures I will tell you that one later.  The water was very nice and warm, I noticed it also was very shallow at first I was a bit disappointed because I could not see anything... but as we keept rowing into the mangroves the experience enhanced with beauty, a magical experience out of a fantasy, glowing water, glowing creatures, like tinny stars at the site of any movement in the water, like glow sticks, glitter, like your in a new world/ galaxy I was incredibly beautiful, dreamy... It stated raining and it just increased the magic as every drop that feel in to the bay was a drop of light... But they say that the one in Vieques witch is also part of Puerto Rico is amazing and more glowing!!! Can't wait to go there, an I hope you bloggers want to visit some time and enjoy the one of a kind experience.

 Their is no pictures that could capture the beauty of those creatures... :( but here is some pictures from the internet.
Explore in Puerto Rico

"Hidden along the Caribbean coast is one of the most spectacular Bioluminescent Bays in the world. The mysterious blue-green light is created by micro-organisms which thrive in an environment uniquely suited to their needs. A trip into the bay on a balmy night is a magical experience." - Captain Sharon Grasso   

One of the most amazing natural phenomenons of the world! Paddle your way through the mystical mangrove channels leading to “Laguna Grande.” There, you will meet our glowing friends, the Pyrodinium Bahamense, a microscopic plankton capable of producing natural light at the touch of your hand!

Old San Juan

This  is my Favorite Place to spend time in this Island ..... Old San Juan

San Juan, the capital of Puerto Rico is the oldest city on US territory (St. Augustine, Florida the oldest city in the continental). Founded in 1521 by Juan Ponce de León, who named it City of Puerto Rico ("Rich Port").

Today, San Juan is known as "La Ciudad Amurallada" (the walled city) and is one of the biggest and best natural harbors in the Caribbean and is the second oldest European-founded city in the Americas (after Santo Domingo, which was officially founded on August 5, 1498.)

El Morro, the word itself sounds powerful and this six-level fortress certainly is. Begun in 1540 and completed in 1589. San Felipe del Morro was named in honor of King Phillip II. Most of the walls in the fort today were added later, in a period of tremendous construction from the 1760's-1780's. Rising 140 feet above the sea, its 18-foot-thick wall proved a formidable defense. It fell only once, in 1598, to a land assault by the Earl of Cumberland's forces. The fort is a maze of tunnels, dungeons, barracks, outposts and ramps. El Morro is studded with small, circular sentry boxes called "garitas" that have become a national symbol. The views of San Juan Bay from El Morro are spectacular. The area was designated a National Historic Site in February, 1949 with 74 total acres. It has the distinction of being the largest fortification in the Caribbean. In 1992, the fortress was restored to its historical form in honor of the 500th anniversary of the discovery of Puerto Rico by Christopher Columbus. El Morro Fortress is a National Historic Site administered by the National Park Service. The fort is open to the public daily from 9am to 5pm
