Hotels [edit]

Puerto Ayora town hosts most of the hotels in the Galapagos Islands. However, average prices are quite high.

When looking for accommodation in the Galapagos we also recommend to pay attention to hotels in Puerto Villamil village of Isabela island.

How to get there [edit]

Fly to Baltra island airport (GPS). Next hire a boat.

When to go [edit]

Time to visit the Galapagos Islands depends on your preferences. From May to September there is a dry season. But from December to May sea water warms up to relatively comfortable temperature.
