Since 1980, this volcanic island has been declared a National Park, protected by different authorities, throughout its 194 hectares, it has proven to be the natural habitat of some of the most peculiar birds species in the Americas, such as the blue-footed booby (Sula nebouxii) and the magnificent frigatebird (Fregata magnificens), among many others.

This geological wonder is separated from the Nayarit coast by 70 kilometers that result in two hours of pleasant boat trip, given its ecological importance, Isabel Island has certain restrictions in order to be unaffected by tourism, so only a maximum of 60 people a day can access and only 30 are allowed to spend the night there.
