Land-Based Galapagos Islands Itinerary (Part 2)

Land-Based Galapagos Islands Itinerary (Part 2), Puerto Villamil, Ecuador (B)

Today we move on to our next Galapagos Island: Isla Isabela. I recommend you to take the first ferry at 07:30AM. That way, you’ll have the whole afternoon to get a feel for Isabela’s atmosphere. The ferry ride takes around 2 hours 20 minutes depending on the weather. It can be quite a bumpy ride. If you are prone to seasickness, consider some motion medication.

Now that we’ve left the Isle of Santa Cruz behind and moved on to lively Isla Isabela, it’s time to find a new place to call home (at least for the next few days). Though there are more than a few quaint hotels and BnB’s on this island, I cannot recommend Hotel Albermarle highly enough. This boutique offers mainland accommodations while keeping true to the island feel. If you can, book a room facing the ocean. The beach is just meters away, and the calming noise of crashing surf will lull you to sleep each night. A few other touches make this place a great choice: free wifi (not a guarantee in the Galapagos!), unlimited purified water, a delicious breakfast, and even laundry service. ......
