Archipiélago de Revillagigedo
..

The Archipiélago de Revillagigedo comprises four remote Pacific islands known for their biodiversity and geological features.

The area is a transition zone, provides important stepping-stones for migratory species and has a high level of endemism. The designated area also includes the surrounding waters with their largely undisturbed marine ecosystems.

Isla San Benedicto, Isla Socorro, Isla Roca Partida and Isla Clarión are uninhabited apart from two small naval bases. They are islands of volcanic origin, and some of the volcanoes are still very active.
