  • Exhibits there, mostly I pass by with photographs and letters. Also the toilet. Was not maintained by the people. It is a dark, scary images. I think I should stop in the middle of the beach and climbing around. Free of charge.

  • Interesting information, but should be displayed better. These are just billboards that tell history and data from the Islands. If it were a guide, would surely be appreciated!

  • Came here as our first stop to San Cristobal with Guiding Galapagos in October 2017. Our naturalist guide took us around the Interpretation Center and talked to us about the information provided which was fascinating. The entire history of the Galapagos for both humans and animals. It is like reading a history book on the island by coming here.
  • Exceptional place to get a deep appreciation for the things that make the Galapagos Islands unique in all the world. Don't miss it.
  • This is a well thought out and fascinating exhibit, even though many parts are showing obvious signs of neglect after several years. We got the feeling that it received a lot of funding about ten years ago, but not much since. Hopefully this is rectified soon!
  • Such a great place to better understand the Galapagos. Spend an hour here. It's important.
  • This place was a bit of a disappointment. It's just a bunch of info on Galapagos. You can find all this info online or in a guide book.
