Probably a favorite among nature lovers, Isla de la Plata is home to marine birds such as the beloved blue footed boobies, masked boobies, and frigatebirds. Isla de la Plata is also an incredible scuba diving and snorkeling spot where you can easily see giant rays, marine turtles, and whale sharks not too far from the surface.
