Puerto Villamil

3.7
Located in the southeast of Isla Isabela, Puerto Villamil is home to the majority of the island's 2,200 inhabitants. A trip to Puerto Villamil reveals a sleepy town with a scenic white-sand beach. Visit the nearby mangroves along a scenic boardwalk, which passes through saltwater lagoons where flamingo, marine iguanas, stilts, and whimbrels feed. A local conservation project offers the chance to see the archipelago's variety of tortoises. The town's beach and calm sandy streets are constantly under threat of overdevelopment, with debates about the future of the town's touristic and agricultural industries a regular fixture in local politics. Our Ecuador itinerary app combines visitor reviews with your personal interests to make an itinerary informed by experts, but tailored to suit your style.

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.
