4.4
#1 of 6 in Parks in Isabela
Island Nature / Park
Get in touch with the local aquaculture population with a visit to the islet of Las Tintoreras. The turquoise waters of the bay are sheltered, providing a perfect spot for sea lions, sea turtles, marine iguanas, stingrays, and reef sharks to hang around. At low tide, the bay is connected to a small shallow pool of clear water, where you can get an up-close look at the sharks. Survey the marine life from a lava deck above, or grab your snorkel and jump right in. To visit Las Tintoreras on your trip to Puerto Villamil, use our Puerto Villamil trip itinerary maker.

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.
