We went snorkeling with East Island Adventures off the shore of Fajardo. The snorkeling was great, as was the turquoise water.
Fajardo is a sleepy town on Puerto Rico's east coast. Used mostly as a stop over between the mainland and the islands Vieques and Culebra, the town doesn't get much attention in it's own right. However, if you have a day or two, the harbor, old fortifications, and local cuisine are all worth at least a night in town. There is even a hostel right by the ferry terminal!
I'm talking specifically about the Bay of Fajardo, which is known for its bioluminescent critters. Nighttime kayaking trips here are very common--and so, so worth it! I've been to other bioluminescent spots, but never seen it this dense and bright. It's a great outing--you have to paddle through a long, dark channel of mangroves before emerging in the bay, which is kind of spooky. We did this trip from San Juan--a long schlep on a bus, but totally worth it!
