An evening in one of the surrounding bays can take your breath away, especially during one of the seasonal upwellings in the Golfo de Papagayo. This is when plankton blooms occur and nature’s most delicate creatures—millions and millions of them—drift with the current just beneath the surface, performing an unforgettable underwater ballet known as bioluminescence. Available only during a new moon.
