Montego Bay is a city located on the northwest coast of Jamaica. It has approximately 79,830 inhabitants and important Tourist Attractions in Montego Bay Jamaica is the Martha Brae River. This river is home to a curious phosphorescent microbe that lives in these warm Caribbean waters.
The constant movement of water causes the microbes to move and shine with an impressive green color.
Montego Bay es una ciudad situada en la costa noroeste de Jamaica. cuenta aproximadamente con 79.830 habitantes y importantes Atractivos Turísticos en Montego Bay Jamaica se encuentra el río Martha Brae. Dicho río es el hogar de un curioso microbio fosforescente que vive en estas cálidas aguas Caribeñas.
El constante movimiento del agua hace que los microbios se muevan y brillen con un impresionante color verde.

This curious phenomenon is given by the presence of dinoflagellated, unicellular organisms that live in places where salt and fresh water merge, and are the reason for the impressive effect of the color exhibited by the waters of the Luminous Lagoon in Jamaica.
Este curioso fenomeno se da por la presencia de organismos dinoflagelados, unicelulares que viven en lugares donde la sal y el agua dulce se funden, y son la razón del impresionante efecto del color que exhiben las aguas de la Laguna Luminosa en Jamaica.

According to scientific information, this phenomenon occurs in a few places worldwide: The Blue Grotto in Malta, The Bioluminescent Bay, in Puerto Rico; "Navarre Beach" in Florida; "Toyama Bay" in Japan; The Matu Islands in Taiwan; and “Raa Atoll Islands” in the Maldives but it is on the island of Jamaica that this shining glow stands out with greater intensity. It should be noted that these are microscopic organisms and the natural phenomenon they create is known as bioluminescence.

De acuerdo con información científica este fenomeno se da en pocos lugares a nivel mundial:El Blue Grotto en Malta; La Bahía Bioluminiscente, en Puerto Rico; “Navarre Beach” en Florida; “Toyama Bay” en Japón; Las islas Matu en Taiwán; y “Raa Atoll Islands” en Maldivas pero es en la isla de Jamaica donde se destaca con mayor intensidad este estremecedor brillo cabe destacar que estos son organismos microscópicos y el fenomeno natural, que crean es conocido como bioluminiscencia

All this natural spectacle originated because the type of ecosystem is conducive to the habitat of dinoflagellates by the union between the fresh water of the mouth of the Martha Brae River and the salty water of the Caribbean Sea. together with the shallow depth of the water and the warm temperature of it, it is the perfect scenario for the development of microorganisms.

todo este espectaculo natural se origino porque el tipo de ecosistema es propicio para el habitat de los dinoflagelados por la unión entre el agua dulce de la desembocadura del río Martha Brae y el agua salada del mar Caribe. unido a la poca profundidad del agua y la cálida temperatura de la misma, es el escenario perfecto para el desarrollo de los microorganismos.

The bright lagoon is located along the wetlands that range from the small Rock community to the town of Falmouth, Trelawny. The lagoon is formed at the point where the Martha Brae River joins the Caribbean Sea.

Mosquito repellent should be taken as its presence will accompany you on the trip.

It is difficult to capture the effect and the neon light with the mobile. so you should take a high definition camera ..

You can buy the tour in Falmouth or book it from any hotel you are staying at. The price will depend on the distance from your hotel to the lagoon and if you have a guide who speaks Spanish or not.

Puedes comprar el tour en Falmouth o reservarlo en cualquier hotel en el que te alojes. El precio dependerá de la distancia desde su hotel hasta la laguna y si tiene un guía que hable español o no.

The luminosity is not always the same. In the lagoon, night cruises are offered to tourists, since at night it is when the bright effect of the microbes is more intense and has an approximate cost of $ 20, the boat stops to allow travelers to swim in the less parts deep in the lagoon, with the waters that shine around it and you enjoy the tropical environment surrounded by mangroves.

La luminosidad no siempre es la misma. En la laguna se ofrecen cruceros nocturnos a los turistas, ya que por la noche es cuando el efecto brillante de los microbios es más intenso y tiene un coste aproximado de 20$, el barco se detiene para permitir a los viajeros nadar en las partes menos profundas de la laguna, con las aguas que brillan a su alrededor y que disfrutar del ambiente tropical rodeado de manglares.

In short, a magnificent spectacle of nature, we should all live this wonderful experience in a peaceful and exciting atmosphere. One of the most magical places in Jamaica.
greetings God Bless you until a new opportunity ..
