Indeed, the small volcanic island boasts less than 1,000 residents and an indigenous flora and birdlife akin to that of the Galápagos. Very few have had the pleasure of standing on its shores. However, those who have quote its idyllic, remote, and wild qualities as unforgettable. From your eco-adventurist accommodations, traverse, kayak, fish, and explore this UNESCO-protected World Biosphere Reserve for a wholly unique adventure of a lifetime.
