Mexico’s ‘bioluminous’ tourist destinations
In Mexico there are beaches and lagoons that feature the natural “magic” phenomena known as bioluminescence, which are flashes of thousands of microorganisms in the turquoise blue that light up at night, Notimex reports.
According to ClickBus, a platform that sells bus tickets online, Holbox Island in Quintana Roo is ideal to escape the hustle and bustle of the city, and is characterized by its tranquility and crystalline sea with small waves, where from May to September you can see the fluorescent water.
It explained that another place where you can enjoy this phenomenon is Chacahua, Oaxaca, where you can see the flashes of neon light in silver, green and blue hues in one of the five lagoons of this National Park in the months of August to March.
In the case of Xpicob, Campeche, bioluminescence can be observed from July to November, in a camp specialized in the conservation of regional flora and fauna, where it is also possible to participate in the release of turtles.
ClickBus stated that 15 minutes from Puerto Escondido, Oaxaca, there is the Manialtepec Lagoon, which is surrounded by mangrove vegetation, where one can also admire at night the marvel of light, which prevails during the rainy season of September.
Lastly, it mentions Bucerías Bay, in Nayarit, where at night the sea is dressed in bright colors as if they were small lights, which catch the waves and remain stamped on the sand.
