Bioluminescent beaches: stars in the night sea of Bucerías

For those who like to live on different night adventures and literally meet the stars at sea, there is nothing better than going to the beautiful beaches of Bucerías to meet the bioluminescence. This phenomenon is produced by millions of microorganisms known as dinoflagellates. The light or glow they emit is produced by a chemical reaction when coming into contact with another temperature or moving oxygen particles. The result is impressively beautiful: the sea becomes with small lights as if it were thousands of stars or fireflies that reflect their light in the darkness of the sea. Swimming among the bioluminescence is one of the best experiences you can experience in life.

    You can find horse shit on the beach and town streets. Disgusting! Those who collect money for horse rides; they certainly should pick up their dang horse. Some poor kid would be glad to do it. If not, ban it right.
