A New Prison to Visit?

Mexican officials announced the opening of the form Isla Marias' prison as a cruise destination.


Mexican officials said ferries and cruise ships may soon be visiting the former Isla Marias prison, after the last island penal colony in the Americas was closed and turned into an environmental education center in 2019.


As the Camp is not bringing in enough revenue officials announced last week that they are planning to build a dock for larger ships on Isla Madre, the main island.



Visitors will be able to tour the island jail but not stay overnight. It was said that Islas Maria harbored many lower-risk or well-behaved inmates and the colony

was considered a step toward release or rehabilitation.
