JOYSXEE Floating Bottle Island, Isla Mujeres
(3.3/5 based on 220+ reviews on the web)
Admire the innovative use of plastic and organic waste at JOYSXEE Floating Bottle Island, created by owner Richard Sowa using more than 150,000 plastic bottles. The island floats on net bags filled with the upcycled bottles, and rests on shipping palettes. In addition to Sowa's house, the island features solar panels and a miniature garden filled with mangroves, palms, herbs, and vegetables. Admire the floating island from land or contact Sowa and take a short tour of his eccentric abode if the season is right.
