Maybe it was just the weather that day, but I found this area to be average at best. The water was murky and choppy, very little in the way of wildlife (by Galapagos standards, anyway), and there was too much port traffic. Go to los...More
If you find yourself ashore on Isabella, and you should if you can, then this is where you will snorkel or dive.
The sealife is amazingly plentiful and varied. Sea turtles will swim with you, the sea lions will check you out, the fish are...More
My daughter and I wanted to kayak, snorkel and see wildlife but not with a big group. We signed up for a tour with Archi Travel where we were fitted for wet suits, (but then we deceided we didn’t really need them) fins, snorkels and...More

Of all the excursions we did while we were in Isabela, this is one that I enjoyed least. Walking on the lava formation was fun, but nothing exciting. The snorkelling which was included in our trip here was fine, but we did not get to...More

We paid about $45 per person. You can pay by credit but they charge extra, about 20%. The person who said there is an ATM is wrong - there is no bank or ATM on Isabela. Best to take lots of cash. The Tintoreras tour is... More
We paid about $45 per person. You can pay by credit but they charge extra, about 20%. The person who said there is an ATM is wrong - there is no bank or ATM on Isabela. Best to take lots of cash. The Tintoreras tour is worth every cent - lovely.
