Living on the Most Crowded Island on Earth

(peaceful music) – [Narrator] A two-hour boat
ride off the coast of Colombia is an island, the most
densely-populated island on earth. (chattering) Santa Cruz del Islote consists
of more than 1,200 people living on land the size
of two soccer fields, making it four times
as dense as Manhattan. On the island is a school
that runs up to the 10th grade, two shops, and one restaurant. There is no steady supply of water and a sole generator that only
runs for five hours per day. There are no police, but there
isn’t much need for them, as everyone on the
island knows each other. (children chattering) 150 years ago, the island
was primarily uninhabited and was sometimes used by local fishermen as a place to rest and
take shelter during storms. Gradually, some fishermen came
to build their homes here. These were the grandparents
and great-grandparents of the current generation of residents. Despite the close living quarters, inhabitants on the island
say they wouldn’t give up their peaceful existence for anything, not even a little more room. (chattering) (peaceful jingling)

  1. This is actually super cool, look at that little peaceful place. The ideal fuckin dream, dude.

  2. I thought birmingham was the most densely populated in the whole world πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚


  4. Oh my god! Can you imagine the stench? Pure human poop and urine dumped right there, poop floating around the entire island, trash dumped right there in the water, the entire island is just one big pollution producing, stinking, brood base!

  5. Every other comment saying they would rather be there. Cut the crap out. You can't even put your phone down for 2 minutes. Yet alone live in a place without technology

  6. I wonder if they have a cemetery or they use the sea for that purpose… πŸ€”

  7. No fresh water and most likely the human waste gets flushed into the ocean and lefties are bitching about plastic bags and straws in America? πŸ–•

  8. Perfect place for the multiplication of zombies πŸ§Ÿβ€β™€οΈ πŸ§Ÿβ€β™‚οΈ πŸ§Ÿβ€β™€οΈ πŸ§Ÿβ€β™‚οΈ πŸ§Ÿβ€β™€οΈ πŸ§Ÿβ€β™‚οΈ πŸ§Ÿβ€β™€οΈ πŸ§Ÿβ€β™‚οΈ πŸ§Ÿβ€β™€οΈ πŸ§Ÿβ€β™‚οΈ πŸ§Ÿβ€β™€οΈ πŸ§Ÿβ€β™‚οΈ πŸ§Ÿβ€β™€οΈ πŸ§Ÿβ€β™‚οΈ πŸ§Ÿβ€β™€οΈ πŸ§Ÿβ€β™‚οΈ

  9. I would shut that place down and move everyone off it, it looks unygenic and a haven for drug smuggling,

  10. Is there a hospital on that island? Are they all fisherman ? Where’s Dollar General ?

  11. They may be happy but they sure as hell can't be healthy…. No mention of sanitation and that's what will kill you every time. A seriously illness could wipe out the entire town.

  12. "I bet my dad can beat up your dad!"

    "Don't be silly, your dad IS my dad."

  13. I’d give up my life to be brought up humbly like that I hate my first world problems with a burning passion

  14. No need to play YouTube video here. All real performances in front. Hit like if you agree. Watching in October 2019.

  15. Wow, that restaurant must be under insane pressure. They'll know who made a bad meal, or raised the prices

  16. Because happiness is:
    No lawyers.
    No insurance companies.
    No psyche meds.
    No endless YouTube commercials.

  17. No police 😳 humans beings , no matter how good natured the group may be, will have issues. I wouldn’t want to be a woman or small girl on an isolated island without law and order.

  18. Imagine waking up on the morning and you stretch your arms only to bump into your neighbors bedroom

  19. β€œMy fear is that the whole island will become so overly populated that it will tip over and capsize." -Democrat Congressman Hank Johnson

  20. The YouTuber who wants to live on an island like this , he/she must have either already given up or has very low ambition . Work hard, get rich and you will own many islands like this . Nobody should live in such a crowded space.

  21. ….Who the hell cares!!!πŸ–•πŸ’©πŸ‘ΎπŸ‘½πŸ‘»β˜ πŸ’€πŸ‘ΊπŸ‘ΉπŸ‘ΏπŸ˜ˆπŸ‘Ž

  22. Africans have a whole continent yet they seek asylum in my country? These people put them to shame the welfare seeking low life's!

  23. Hmm seems you may get voted off this island if you even fart… doesn't seem humane

  24. Geez I live in Hawaii and its tough enough to get a bad rep here… Imagine being the hot topic of gossip and getting a bad rep there! That would suckkkk

  25. At least it’s peaceful shit America is one big shit hole country! Kudos to these people! Live love laugh.

  26. they could upgrade the whole city, clean all the house and build one tall 50 stories building lol

  27. I hope we're able to reverse the damage from climate change. Imagine if a small patch of Nebraska, the size of this island, will be the only part of the US above water.

  28. We gotta stop running into each other everyday. See u n 5 minutes I'm goin walk the island and site see again
