Cartago Bay is walking distance from the harbour and the town. It has hammocks and air conditioning and hot showers and spacious cottages and two of the most genuine and friendly owners you could wish to meet. Wonderful value and an excellent choice for those of us who only speak English.

If you are going to go to one island in the Galapagos, Isabela is the one to choose. I have been to most of the islands several times now, including on boat tours, and this time I feel we totally lucked out by being personally referred to Cartago Bay and its owners Celso and Gulnara. Celso is a native Galapagan... More
