Isabela Island

Wilderness and Wildlife

Isabela is the largest island in the Galapagos, but with a population of only around 2,200, it remains one of the gems of the archipelago.

This is laid-back island living at its finest. The beach is easily accessed from town though it is often occupied by local iguanas and other wildlife.

The town offers humble seafood restaurants with some interesting beachfront bars.

"Just got back from a 12-day trip to the Galapagos arranged thru Galapagos Alternative and everything was exceptional. From the tours, to the transfers, flights, and most importantly the people... everything was smooth. Highly recommend it!"
