  • If you have a few days in the Galapagos can ignore, there are too many people and remains of vegetation. The day we went we saw hundreds of insects like flea that went from one side to another of the shore and we went fast.

  • Beach we met along the trail that leads to las grietas and that's pretty much enclosed and protected within a species of little Bay. Doesn't seem one of the most beautiful views even if the reference is mainly to the beaches of the Islands and so much nicer colours. We did not stop to enjoy it but the bottom seemed low and therefore very easy for everyone.

  • We have to go through this beach to make some activity. The inhabitants of the hotel Fishbay will like it a lot because it is has its foot. Otherwise, there's finest.

Where to stay in Puerto Ayora

As a popular jumping-off point for Galapagos visitors, Puerto Ayora receives loads of tourists, and therefore features many of the accommodation options you might expect from a major destination. Though there are types of lodging to suit all kinds of budgets, prices in general tend to be higher in Puerto Ayora than in mainland Ecuador. The more upscale hotels catering to wealthier visitors lie along the waterfront in the vicinity of Avenida Charles Darwin, and offer excellent access to the sea, port, and restaurant scene. Consider renting out a private apartment room or staying in a smaller-scale hotel a few blocks back from the ocean in order to cut down on costs, as the city itself is easily walkable.
