The "hotel" was comprised of small, wooden cabins by the sea. The bathroom was very small, everything was very primitive. The room was clean. There was no tv, no coffee maker, no Internet, no phone reception. All these gave a special perspective of the Galapagos experience. Just walk out of the cabin, it was the ocean. I saw seals swimming and lots of colourful crabs walking around. The next morning, I saw blue herring standing at the tip of the pavilion outside of the cabins. It was such an interesting stay!
