Caleta Iguana is a great place to stay in Isabela Island. The rooms are nicely decorated and clean. It's right on the water. They have a happy hour and this is where every traveler on the island comes to have a good time in the early evening. Emily is the best! She helps you with anything you need. Every hotel... More

We stayed at Caleta Iguana for almost a week at the end of our honeymoon, and for the first three nights, we had a small room on the front of the building, with a separate entrance. The first night, we did not lock the door and while we were asleep, our camera was stolen out of our room! Apparently, something... More

Splash out to stay in this lovely hotel right up the end of the idyllic Isabela main street. Nicely appointed rooms and really friendly service. We had the (cheaper) double room with shared bathroom, it was absolutely fine. Great large beachside balconies and a superb beach bar compete the picture.

Stayed for 4 nights in May and couldn't have picked a better place. Took the small room beside the bar which was pretty hot, but they fixed the fan and got us another small fan practically right away which made the stay easier. The location couldn't be better and being able to relax and read in the hammocks was a... More

We spent two days there. Definitly the best hostal and location on isabella island. If you want to combine excellent breakfast with surfing and a great sea view caleta iguana is the right place for you.

The casa rosada is a very nice place to stay on the Isla Isabela (i.m.o. the prettiest of the main Galapagos Islands). It is located right at a beautiful beach, with a nice beach bar included (so there are always people around). The dorm is nice and the bathroom is cleaned daily. Breakfast is included. Decent WiFi. You can rent... More

I did not stay at their hotel but I used them to arrange activities for me. Emilie (pronounced Emily) was very helpful and patient with me.

We had the best time here. Great value. Could stay here for months. Laid back. Friendly and at the quiet end of a beautiful beach. Emily makes everyone feel welcome and organises some great trips. Share the bar with iguanas.
