Villa Opuntia is situated in a magical walled garden which delights all of ones senses, we were welcomed with a big fruit basket, fresh flowers and fresh bread. Close to town and the trail to Tortuga Bay, I would highly recommend it as THE place to stay when visiting the Galapagos Islands.

We're a family of six and stayed at this lovely house for four days. It was a perfect arrangement for us. The house is beautiful and spacious. It's less than five minute walk to the entrance of gorgeous Tortuga beach and short distance to town. The location couldn't be any better. We walked every where including to Charles Darwin Center....
