TravelPod Member ReviewsHotel Silberstein Puerto Ayora
This is a very comfortable albeit small hotel. It has very spacious rooms with king size beds and efficient airconditioning. There is a nice pool area.We had full board here and the meals were excellent. Three course dinners with a variety of dishes all well presented. A pleasant bar area with efficient and friendly service. Free WiFi available. I would recommend this to any visitor as it is an easy distance into the harbour area and a short walk to shops and restaurants.

The ride was not bumpy at all. We saw a whale breaching, ...

The empanadas were cheaper ($1), bigger, and better than any other empanadas we had found previously on the islands and the fruit was cheaper than anywhere else as well. Finally, we had found where the locals go to eat and shop. Earlier in the day, while searching for ...
... to the dock to gaze at the animals swimming around. There are bright neon lights pointed at the water and the animals are attracted to them at night so you can just look down and see sharks, schools of fish and golden mustard rays, and sea lions swimming around. We saw all of these (the rays were probably the most impressive for me) and even ran into the same sea lion from last night, the aggressive male who likes to sleep on the bench. This time, we found him lounging on the side of ...
I found a snake under a log when looking for a carpet bee. I am getting to be good at spotting snakes, like I saw in the amazonia when I spotted a anaconda.
Michel described about the volcanic lava. Like the gas in the lava makes bubbles, pahoehoe in Hawaiian means ropes, etc
The landscape reminds me of a moon scape.
Afterwards we went snorkelling on the beach, which was nice because it was very hot and also our ...
