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.

"Could not have dreamed of a better honeymoon on the Gal√°pagos Islands. Javier, Jill and their incredible staff put together a wonderful tour for my husband & I. We were blown away by the beauty of the land, friendly staff and great customer care. "
