Wander, walk, never hurry was my mantra on Isabela! The wetlands are one of the places to seek out wildlife. Predominantly iguanas with a few flamingos mixed in to keep it interesting. Best to walk it in the morning and return in the late afternoon. Between is usually too hot.

Very nice way to spend a walking day. See a few flamingos in the wetland ponds, walk to Tortuga Rehabilitation Project. Lots of different sizes of turtles to see, watch, talk to, film. Enjoyable, but not with a guide or waiting taxi. Don't rush, just breath, enjoy time with lovely creatures.

Walk way starts next to Iguana crossing hotel and leads to the tortoise breeding centre, all of which are free to enter. Along the timber walk way we were welcomed by iguanas sunbaking, then a little further down 3 flamingos out for breakfast and a lot of little ducks. After the wetlands the walkway leads you through mangroves filled with little friendly birds to you reach the tortoise breeding centre. There are so many tortoise here all at different stages of growth from a few months to many decades, really fun to watch them all. They have a couple of different species of tortoise here as well which is great to see the difference, I didn't realise each species has different shell shapes and leg lengths.

Very nice road without cars where had different "exits" that take you to lagoons, lava formations, beaches,lookouts... it is definetely a MUST do if you are in Isabella. The place to go if you want to rent a bike is Galapagos Bike& Surf There are other places , not sure if cheaper, but these guys are great & so their bikes. They have that gel inside that will almost prevent you from having a flat tire. Their children bike chairs are the best compared to the other places.

We enjoy walking so we tried this area. Easy walking (no inclines) and mainly marshland. We found it extremely warm and humid.

My wife and I toured these shallow mangrove-lined wetlands by Zodiac boat in February 2018. Our guide was excellent, and showed us many species - turtles, rays and many land and sea birds. We took 00's of photographs.

The place is completely unspoiled - you'll feel like you were the first people ever to visit. Highly recommended.

The Wetlands Complex is an easy stroll from town. Great boardwalk through the wetlands to view lots of flamingos, marine iguanas, ducks and other birds. The flamingos were amazing. Very peaceful walk - some of the boardwalk is shaded which enables you to escape from the blazing sun (The Galapagos are very hot!). Do not miss the Wetlands Complex if you are visiting Isabela.

Boardwalks built over mangroves. Lots of birds to film including Pink Flamingos. Trail goes up to the tortoise nursery. Nice walk. Highly recommended. Free.

Always fascinating to observe tortoises throughout different stages of the development cycle. It has a serene feel to the walk to/from the beach as you encounter flamingos and gnarled mangroves. Recommend an hour or two to enjoy it!
