    This was one of our last stops on the Celebrity Xpedition 7 Night Outer Loop Cruise we did in April. The landscape here is very dramatic. The volcanic rocks at the beach's edge jut out in front of a p...  more »

    Thoroughly enjoyed our 2 hour walk here. The Orange land iguanas were fascinating to watch. They appeared on the track in front of us and were not disturbed by our presence at all. The walk to the top...  more »

    Dragon Mountain lives up to its name. This is a good a place as any to see the Galapagos land iguana.

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.
