Trip Planner: South America / Ecuador / Galapagos Islands / Isabela / Puerto Villamil / Concha de Perla
Get up close and personal with marine life when you snorkel at Concha de Perla. Cross over a wooden bridge through a mangrove forest, keeping an eye open for iguanas and other land animals as you approach the lagoon. A large rock formation in front of the lagoon keeps the waters here especially calm, making this area great for children and those new to snorkeling. The clear water makes it easy to see the marine life such as sea lions, sharks, many types of fish, turtles, and more.

Depending on the time the neoprene is essential since el.agu is pretty cool, it still is an experience not to be missed if you're to Isabela.

港のすぐそばにある片道3分ほどで歩けるトレイルです。途中にアシカが寝ていたりと距離が短いながらも道中を楽しめます。イザベラ島の1日ツアーに参加してティントレーラスを訪れない場合はこちらでシュノーケリングをするようです。 more »This is a trail located just off the port of one-way about three minutes walk. Sea Lion sleep during short distance with them while also can be enjoyed along the way. If Isabella Island one day tour, and visit the thin trails seem to snorkel here.

E' caratteristico perché ci si arriva passando dalla mangrovie e "saltando" le foche o leoni marini come li si vogliono chiamare! Tante iguane e tanti granchi. more »It is characteristic because you can get there via the mangroves and "jumping" seals or sea lions as they want to call! Many iguanas and many crabs.

After you walk down the dock through the mangroves, you are offered up beautiful views of the lagoon area then out into the Ocean. Seals lounging all around, like h ousr pets. The visibility was really poor for me today, though there was some fish and other sea life to enjoy.

Great lagoon to snorkel for free just off the harbor. It is connected directly to the harbor so what you see in there is always changing. No guarantees what you will see at any given time. The four times we have been there the water has been crystal clear and is not very deep. We have seen a Penguin, iguanas, seal lions, rays, and assortment of fish. The walkway to the lagoon is beautiful and well maintained. There is a well maintained deck with two sets of stairs into the water. Each time we have gone down there we have step around or over iguanas and couple of times sea lions on the path and on the deck. There are benches and places to hang your stuff. The view from the deck is great even if you don't snorkel.

Here you can see sea turtles (to the right where the water flows out) and sometimes sea lions to swim with. Check also the inflow of water (straight ahead) where a lot of reef fish are. Obviously, bring your snorkeling gear ;)

Beautiful and free. You can see lots of animals if you're lucky

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.
