Discover a hidden paradise in the Riviera Nayarit
Meet Isla Isabel National Park, an oasis of marine biodiversity. Over nine species reproduce in this natural habitat located four hours from San Blas. Isla Isabel is home to the blue-footed booby, the brown pelican, frigate birds, seagulls, whale sharks, and many other animal and plant species.
