Iguana Crossing is a clean, quiet, modern boutique hotel with the best location. We had a balcony with a view of the ocean and a view of the pool. The hotel had a wooden boardwalk behind the property that ended up at the tortoise breeding center. If I come back to The Galapagos, I will definitely stay here. I woke...

This place was so highly recommended on this site that I thought it would be a definite winner. Yes, it is in a great location along the beach and we had an ocean and (distant) volcano view, but don't think it was worth the price. We paid in excess of $400USD per night and it did not offer anything to...
