What an incredibly beautiful and modern hotel, right on the beach near a pond where pink flamingos gather, and Iguana clamber from the lava outcrops near the beautiful sand beach. Pedro, the host, is a reliable font of wisdom on tours, timetables, and communications. The food is very good and clean, and the wine list is quite good and not...

Iguana Crossing is a clean, quiet, modern boutique hotel with the best location. We had a balcony with a view of the ocean and a view of the pool. The hotel had a wooden boardwalk behind the property that ended up at the tortoise breeding center. If I come back to The Galapagos, I will definitely stay here. I woke...
