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.

"Was like having your best friend showing you his home. It was fun, memorable and we couldn't imagine touring the Galapagos any other way."
