There are no negatives for this beautiful house and top notch staff. The moment you walk up the stairs after disembarking from the water taxi - the only way to get to anywhere and they are plentiful. You can even hail your own taxi from the dock, if you like - are the hot tub and swimming pool. We had... More

Casa Iguana is the most relaxing, blissful place to enjoy the Galapagos Island. The house exceeded expectations. The house provided every amenity needed. Alejandro and Marianna were the best support to our large family. We wanted to take them home... wonderful! The "coco con queso" was exquisite and baked fresh daily.

The house is beautiful, view exciting, staff friendly, and location ideal. Keep a look out for sea lions, turtles, and eagle rays while sitting on the deck. The bird watching is spectacular; a lone frigate bird sits on the post in front. A great experience. Highly recommended.

I came with 9 members of my family ranging from 8 to 75 years old. Great fun was had by all! We could do as little or as much as we liked. The villa caretaker was very helpful in arranging trips for us. The staff spoke only a little English, but we managed. Everything they cooked was superb! The villa... More

A great way to end a spectacular dive trip. The house is beautifully decorated and well appointed. A couple of days to relax in comfort and seclusion, although town is just a short water taxi ride away. Ideal place to spend time with friends and family as part of your Galapagos experience.
