    The sea shell house

    I wish I could remember who to thank for posting this tip originally! I used VT to make a trip planner and would not have known about this curious little house otherwise.
    To find this interesting home;
    1.Rent a golf cart or scooter 2. Do a lap around the island. 3. If you are heading south along the west coast then after you pass the Mayan ruins it will be along the east coast and on your left side. The island is 5 miles long and 1/2 mile wide. I found it. you can too :) There were other interesting homes along the way.
    You can rent golf carts from several places. I had good luck with Ciros.

    Rent a Bike

    Even on the ferry to the island, the guys on the boat will try to rent you a scooter or if you’re a family one of those golf-sort-of-cars. My option was to get to the island and rent a bike, just to get to the south point…

    It’s only USD 2 or 3 an hour… while a scooter is USD 10 or 15.

    What path?

    by Pat&ZoAnn Updated Apr 30, 2006

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The path is pretty well beaten down here, it's a small island. The only thing I haven't seen much coverage of is the south east side. It's pretty barren and windswept here, not very good for swimming or sunbathing, but it has a wild beauty of its own.

    Bird Sanctuary

    For bird watching, take a day tour of the uninhabited National wildlife reserve of Contoy. There is a small museum featuring ecological displays. This particular place doesn't very look open, but there are places on the island to book this tour:)

    Cheap tour

    Get on the bus that stops on the malecon.
    It is really cheap. For the four of us it was like a dollar. It will take you over most of Isla. You get to see their small airport, their lagoon, the navel base, streets, and houses. It will go in a circle and drop you off where ever you want.

    Colourful Cemetery

    It may seem unusual to visit a cemetery while on holiday, but this one is worth a visit because it is so colourful.

    If you venture to the south end of the island, be sure to ride past this unusual and very unique house.
