Casa La Iguana
Ranked #31 of 62 Santa Cruz B&B and Inns
Reviewed April 26, 2012

Casa La Iguana is a 5 bedroom, 7 bathroom house located on the bay in Puerto Ayora, Santa Cruz island's main port and the gateway to the rest of the Galapagos Islands. The house sits right on the water and is easily accesible by a 2 minute boat-taxi ride from the main dock in town.

Casa La Iguana is most likely Galapagos' best rental property. It is tastefully decorated and uses local materials in its construction and decor. All rooms are tastefully done and have private bathrooms, TV and A/C. The staff cooked for us delicious fresh seafood daily and arranged all our day trips around the islands for exploration, snorkeling, etc.

This place really MADE our Galapagos vacation. Highly recommended!
