Bhia Mosquito

Bhia Mos­qui­to

Also known as Bio­lu­mi­nes­cent Bay, Bahia Mos­qui­to is filled with a species of phos­pho­res­cent dynofla­gel­late, mak­ing the waters glow — it’s a mag­nif­i­cent sight, par­tic­u­lar­ly in the dark. The microor­gan­isms are harm­less. Avoid any cruise offers that use motor boats, though, as the pol­lu­tion sig­nif­i­cant­ly kills off the phos­pho­res­cent organ­isms, min­i­miz­ing the unusu­al effect. Instead, opt for one of the many eco-friend­ly kayak tours avail­able. (USA Today)
