/// Detailed Info for This Tour


At Night, The Waters of The Lagoon Shine When They Are Agitated.

The Laguna de Manialtepec is a coastal lagoon about 18 km west of Puerto Escondido in the State of Oaxaca, Mexico(about 2 hours 30 from Huatulco). The name comes from Náhuatl "manial" (spring) and "tepec" (Hill), meaning (Hill where water is born). About four times a year, more or less, the lagoon becomes phosphorescent due to a type an alga that lives in the lagoon.

The organism's luminescence is activated by the movement of the water. At night, streaks of light can be seen due to the movement of fish (and humans) in the water. Your driver will stop in Zicatela in Puerto Escondido, for you to enjoy a drink and wait for the sunset, then he will keep driving to Manialtepec. You will take a small boat and go into the lagoon water.
