I can't say enough about the hospitality I received at Galapagos Cottages and Tip Top dive. Even prior to my arrival Jorge eased my mind about traveling solo in the Galapagos and at the same time obtaining my PADI open water certification. Jorge helped arrange transportation with Pancho which went flawlessly even with a bit of a language barrier between Pancho and I. When I arrived to Galapagos Cottages Charles was there to great me and showed me to an immaculately maintained two story "cottage". It was a large cottage with great water pressure, a large king bed, sofa, kitchen and terrace with my own hammock. Later in the day I was able to meet Jorge after several weeks corresponding via email. He gave suggestions on where to eat, what to do etc. He is genuinely concerned about the students at Tip Top Dive and made me extremely comfortable through out the course. I am not sure if I would have been able to complete the course during the trip if it wasn't for the time and dedication Jorge put in to helping me achieve a life long dream.
I think the location of the cottages is ideal. Just down the hill from the entrance to Tortuga Bay and a quick, easy, safe walk to town where restaurants and shopping abound. Walking distance to boats for day trips and the Darwin Research Center. If I am ever lucky enough to return to the Galapagos I will be staying at Galapagos Cottages. All the best to Jorge and his wonderful family!
