Ok, if you want to sample local cuisine, this is the place to go. Right on the beach, the seafood is fresh and excellent too. This is an area with many different small restaurants that you walk around and sample. Some sit downs also, good choice would be the one called El Ancla.

Parguera Fishing Charters

Attraction | "Bahia fosforecente de la Parguera"

Quote:
This is a phosphorescent bay located in La Parguera PR. This is one of maybe five bays in all of the world. The tour takes you and then lets you dive in. You will shine and see the fishes swimming and leaving a trail of fluorescence in their wake. The kids love it.
