JOYSXEE Floating Bottle Island, Isla Mujeres

3.2
#4 of 6 in Parks in Isla Mujeres
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.

    We did not get to visit, because when we got to the lagoon (where the picture was made at the top of the page), he had moved his island! So his location right now is not at the place where it is shown...  more »

    Cool place to stop and visit. It is amazing to see how this man made this island. Floating on all plastic.  more »

    We tried to find this place for two days. The locals kept telling us that he has been moving around lately. We found him just before going on the ferry back to Cancun , so we never got to tour him.  more »

Isla Mujeres brims with accommodations catering to visitors looking to indulge in the region's excellent diving options. Budget-conscious travelers can find a selection of hostels and small guesthouses--many of which only accept payment in cash--just back from the beach. A larger selection of mid-range and luxury hotels offer views over the water, with the northern tip of the island serving as the most popular place to stay. Make sure you book your accommodations well in advance if visiting in peak season, from December to April.
