All you see are advertisements of Glistening Waters at the Luminous Lagoon, but be aware that there are four businesses that operate at the Luminous Lagoon. Our tour company (Amstar) took us to a small operation behind some houses. The real Glistening Waters has a restaurant, hotel and boat ride. The one we were taken to had the boat ride... More

The lagoon is a must see, as there's not many of these in the world and it's completely natural. I'm glad I did it, and went in for a swim and for that I've given it a 4 star rating. It was a little scary swimming in the dark and look out for floating foliage… it startled a few people!... More

This tour was one of the best experiences I had in Jamaica. its a short tour but is totally worth it , you need to bring your bathing suit and get ready to jump in the water. The staff is very friendly!!

Totally worth it! many of my party went in the muddy lagoon but not me! I loved watching the blue lights! At first I thought it was fake but it's so real and lovely! Tour boat operator was great.

Not for everyone!!! If you one of those that do not like to see other smoke and enjoy themselves, stay in hotel LOL. It is not a swimming pool or a regular beach. Its a lagoon with brackish water and silt at 5 feet deep. Its mud. Who cares about a bit muddy swimsuit??? So if we have all that... More

Something very cool to see and experience if you get out that way. Make sure to bring mosquito repellent because they do be biting out there!

Right when I booked my trip to Jamaica, this was the one excursion I was dying to go see. I told everyone about it and I was super excited. I was staying in Lucea (Grand Palladium) and booked the excursion through them. The price included travel there and back as well as the tour. It ended up being about $60... More

Night trip out in a boat to see this amazing sight is a must......!!! The water really does light up, so magical to see. Not the normal everyday trip but well worth the experience, highly recommend.
