Island featured in JurassicWorldIcon
Okay, this is as good a place as any to begin... Isla Matanceros. It's relatively stable. Yeah, you can get your feet wet here. And you should, because diving into the deep end of this pool is where the, big, angry, hungry things are. And you want to be ready before you try that.

Isla Matanceros is the second largest island in Las Cinco Muertes, located north of Isla Muerta. Benefiting from calm weather conditions and a pleasant climate, Matanceros is the first Jurassic World island operation.[2]

Progressing through Isla Matanceros will unlock access to Isla Muerta at three stars, the Isla Nublar sandbox at four stars, and Dig Team Bravo in the Research Center at five stars.

InGen Database Description

Isla Matanceros is the northernmost island in the Five Deaths (Las Cinco Muertes) island chain. No known InGen operations occurred on any of these islands, other than Isla Sorna.
It is known for its steep mountain ranges and lush tropical forest. The weather is calmer here compared to the other islands.


In the 1980s, the islands of the Muertes Archipelago, including Isla Matanceros, were purchased from the Costa Rican government by InGen, in a 99-year lease which also covered Isla Nublar to the east.[3] Although InGen was not known to operate a facility on Matanceros, Costa Rican fishermen were apprehensive about each of the Five Deaths.[4]


Isla Matanceros park

A park on Isla Matanceros.

In Jurassic World Evolution, Isla Matanceros functions as a tutorial island, where players begin their journey across the Five Deaths, learning the basics of both park and dinosaur management. Located next to the coast, and nestled next to a mountain range, the buildable area on Matanceros is limited in comparison to many of the later islands, though still provides a great deal of space to build enclosures for dinosaurs and facilities for guests.

As with the other islands, the topography of Isla Matanceros presents a challenge to the power, with large mountains obstructing the buildable area. When players first arrive on Matanceros, the Hammond Foundation have already created a single enclosure, a monorail station and numerous administrative and research buildings. With these in place, players are instructed by Cabot Finch to construct a Hammond Creation Lab on the side of the prebuilt enclosure, from which the first of many future dinosaurs will be released.
