Where to stay in Puerto Villamil

As the largest town on the island and a jumping-off point for Galapagos explorations, Puerto Villamil offers plenty of places to stay. The main coastal road has the greatest concentration, including a nice selection of boutique hotels with swimming pools, spas, and excursion booking desks. Meanwhile, a pleasant set of simpler hotels and guesthouses still offers good views along the coast. Move a bit inland to find a scattering of hotels and bed and breakfasts, offering either resort-style luxuriousness or a budget-friendly simplicity.
