Glistening Waters in Jamaica

At Montego Bay, Jamaica, a very interesting phenomenon occurs. Alongside the Martha Brae River is a lagoon known as Glistening Waters. It contains bioluminescent microorganisms that give off light whenever the water moves enough.

On the northern coast of Jamaica, just an hour and a half away from Montego Bay, we arrive at Ocho Rios (the locals call it Ochie), which has gone from a modest fisherman’s port to becoming a first rate tourist destination. Contrary to what the name suggests, the town does not have eight rivers, and the name probably derives from a misinterpretation of the original name Las Chorreras, applied to the springs near the River Dunn. Renowned for its beautiful waterfalls, the Y’s Falls, Ocho Rios is the wildest and probably the most beautiful region in Jamaica. The Dunn’s River…
