La Casa del Ceibo looks like it started out as tree-house for the kids that then became an obsession. The Ceibo tree itself is massive and very impressive. The tree house with a working toilet, is fun for the kids, but less so for adults....More

Impressive house build inside of a massive Ceibo. It is a quick stop that can be followed by a short visit to the bar where you can see different coins from different countries. Some different to do while in Galapagos.

For some reason this stupid thing is tacked on to the highland tour which visits El Junco, the tortoise breeding center and Puerto Chino beach. That ridiculous tree house thing, which is advertised on billboards all over town, was so bad and hoaky that it...More

This quirky tree house was an interesting interlude as part of a highlands trip. You can walk the rickety bridge and explore the small "house" built into a large tree. The adventuresome can exit via the fireman's pole. Once back on the ground you can...More

So much entertainment for just $2! We visited this tree house after going to El Junco (roundtrip taxi ride for both was $22 including tip, with the driver waiting for us at both sites). The swinging bridge, tree house itself, fireman's pole (we passed on...More

$1.50 entrance fee. You walk up to the tree house via a swinging bridge. The house is small but has space for a toilet and 2 mattresses in the loft. You can slide down a metal pole from the tree house back to the ground...More
