Isla Taborcillo (sometimes described as John Wayne Island) is a small private island 40 kilometres (25 miles)[1] off the coast of Panama, which was once owned by American film actor John Wayne. Currently owned by Austrian businessman Ralph Hübner, founder of publishing company Who is Who,[2] the island contains a resort hotel and theme park, and is a vacation destination for tourists. A part of the island has been designated as a protected bird sanctuary; egrets, brown pelicans and hummingbirds nest here.[2]
