Another house in the form of sea shell. And again in the Mexico. In the previous post we told you about Nautilus House in Mexico City. In this one we represent you Conch Shell House in the island of Isla Mujeres. The owner of the house is Octavio Ocampo, famous artist.

    I thought it was amazing in 2004 and I am still thinking about a revisit to Isla Mujeres

  5. This is super cool I want a place like this… Reminds me of Dr. Doolittle.

  6. My Apologies miss-msry I meant to say Isla Mujeres is Eastern most point in Mexico and not far from the shell house is the Punta Sur. Punta Sur and the Kings Swimming pool are on opposite ends of the island and both worth seeing. Rent a Scooter.

  7. I have seen this in person it’s absolutely beautiful. One of the coolest little islands in the Mexican Rivera. And at the southern most point in Mexico.

      No it isn’t, it’s right off Cancun. What year was it built? When I was last there in 1995, I didn’t see it.
