“Nothing about this island feels right. And my instincts, are usually pretty accurate when it comes to issues regarding the dinosaurs. So much of what happens on the islands is a secret, by necessity, yes... but this, this feels like something else. Too cramped, too isolated. It's as if someone is gathering up all the materials for a disaster. Tread carefully.”

Isla Pena is the smallest and easternmost island in the Muertes Archipelago, located to the north east of Isla Tacaño. By far the smallest island of the Five Deaths, Pena has limited space for Jurassic World operations and due to its small size and lack of mountain cover, it is susceptible to extreme storms.
In the 1980s, the islands of the Muertes Archipelago, including Isla Pena, were purchased from the Costa Rican government by InGen, in a 99-year lease which also covered the neighbouring Isla Nublar to the east. Although InGen was not known to operate a facility on Isla Pena, Costa Rican fishermen were apprehensive about the entire island chain.
“Isla Pena is a difficult location for your operations. The Hammond Foundation was only able to secure a small area for development. Operations here are conducted at night and it suffers from frequent storms.”
- - In-game description Isla Pena is the smallest island available in Jurassic World Evolution, and as such, provides the least amount of buildable area to develop. These limitations force players to think creatively when creating their park on a relatively narrow piece of land, which, when coupled with the extreme storms Isla Pena is susceptible to, makes Isla Pena one of the most challenging islands in the game.
- Isla Pena is unlocked in Jurassic World Evolution with a three star facility on Isla Tacaño
- Isla Pena is the 4th island unlocked in the Muertes Archipelago.
- Due to its small size and vulnerability to storms, Isla Pena is widely considered to be the most difficult island in Jurassic World Evolution.
