The majority of Isabela residents make their living by fishing, farming, and tourism. In the 90s, development for tourism began. A small airport was completed in 1996 for inter-islands flights. The number of hotels, restaurants and bar grew since then. However, the town still retains its relaxed attitude in contrast to Puerto Ayora on Santa Cruz and Puerto Baquerizo Moreno on San Cristóbal The center of population is on the southern coast at Puerto Villamil. Villamil is probably one of the most beautiful townsite in Galapagos, with its long, white-sand, palm-lined beaches and several brackish-water lagoons frequented by pink flamingoes, common stilts, whimbrels, white-cheeked pintails, and gallinules.
