All ages will enjoy the thrill of bamboo rafting, entertaining folklore and the stunning Luminous Lagoon of Glistening Waters. Daytime rafting along the river is popular and inexpensive and offers beautiful natural scenery and wildlife. Enjoy a 1 hour 15 minute raft ride or take a tour. An evening rafting trip can be a very special experience as the rafts take you to the Luminous Lagoon where the river meets the Caribbean Sea. The river is home to a rare phosphorescent microbe that lives in the shallow warm place where salt and freshwater meet. The constant flow of the river moves the microbes and causes them to glow. Movement of the water and activity from boat tours and swimmers enhance the effect. When the boats stop, riders can enjoy swimming or relaxing in the warm shallow (5 - 8 feet deep) areas of the lagoon and see the water glow around them.
