Isla Isabel (also called Isla Isabela) is a small volcanic island, a little over a mile square, and about 45 miles from the nearest port. Often called the Galapagos of Mexico, and famous for the documentary that Jacques Cousteau made here, this little island is a National Park and a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Other than a small row of fishermen's shacks and a small scientific campsite, the island is uninhabited by humans. It is heavily inhabited by birds, who have no natural predators here, and therefore do not startle easily. You can walk among the thousands of nesting Magnificent Frigatebirds and Blue Boobies (No, I'm not making those names up!) like any other animal. Doing so was one of the most beautiful experiences I've had.
