Description previously said entire house/apt but it is just a strip of motel type rooms. We gave notice but she charged for 3 days instead of one. It is out of town and requires a 1 mile walk to stores and cafes even for bottled water which is necessary. Not secure-We came back from the store and owners keys were...

I arrived at the airport at Isabela Island via a flight from San Cristobal. As I don't speak any Spanish, I was happy to find a taxi at the airport to get me to Cartago Bay.

Cartago Bay is walking distance from the harbour and the town. It has hammocks and air conditioning and hot showers and spacious cottages and two of the most genuine and friendly owners you could wish to meet. Wonderful value and an excellent choice for those of us who only speak English.

If you are going to go to one island in the Galapagos, Isabela is the one to choose. I have been to most of the islands several times now, including on boat tours, and this time I feel we totally lucked out by being personally referred to Cartago Bay and its owners Celso and Gulnara. Celso is a native Galapagan...
