Little touches, like a replicated Scottish burn (stream), a tee over an ocean inlet towards a cliff (supposedly shaped like a Taíno chief's face) and a finish playing around sugar plantation ruins, show indications of the creativity that went into the course design here. The course also conserves some important wildlife, including many rare butterfly species, and there is a self-guided tour of the fauna you might spot.

Nonmembers must contact Royal Isabela in advance to see if there are available tee times. Sip a few cocktails in the elegant 19th hole, positioned to give the perfect course overview, or eat in the Moroccan-decorated La Casa restaurant afterwards.
