Isla Contoy A National Bird Sanctuary


A Tropical Paradise
Isla Contoy sits on the imaginary line separating the Gulf of Mexcio and the Caribbean Sea. A pirate’s haven, Contoy looks like a movie set. This MexicanNational Park, a true island paradise, is lined with coconut palm trees and awaits you .

Isla Contoy is your classic deserted tropical island. It sits on the imaginary line that separates the Gulf of Mexico and the Caribbean Sea. By sitting where these two great bodies of water meet there is an abundance of marine life making it a great place for birds. More that 120 species of birds call Isla Contoy home, their nesting area, or a way station between their winter and summer homes..
