(4/5 based on 3,200 reviews on the web)

Stepping onto the isolated island feels like traveling back in time, as many of the local "Taquilenos" make their living by traditional means, such as farming and producing hand-woven textiles. The island's residents, who live based on a philosophy of collectivism, have created a sustainable tourism model, providing accommodations, transport, cultural activities, and food for visiting guests. Stay for a few days to immerse yourself in the island's distinct culture.
