Isabela Program

Isabela is a paradise where live moves slowly. People are relaxed and in the village of Villamil you walk in the sand – both at the beach and on the streets. The island’s wildlife is unique. The marine iguanas virtually step on your feet while flamingos are hanging out in the lagoons. In the natural pools of the small harbour lions are waiting for snorkellers  to swim and play.
