TravelPod Member ReviewsHotel Ninfa Puerto Ayora
I saw some rating somewhere that weren't happy with Las Ninfas because they only speak in Spanish. My response to that is uhhh...think about where you are. For the majority of the trip, everybody was fantastic. The guides were great for a majority of the time minus a few quirks here and there, of that being when they talk, they talk in spanish so fast that it is difficult to understand. I do not have a problem with the spanish but they could have spoken a bit slower because there were a lot of people from other countries there. That was my only real complaint. The good wasn't bad at all. The accommodations were worth it. The beaches, the atmosphere, the way they take care of you was really well done and thought out. I would have liked to have seen a few more things like more blue footed boobies but when they sent you off to Florena or Isabella or wherever you go, you are on a good boat with a good captain and they make sure you are safe and if you get sick they take care of you as well. It sure beats the hell out of Royal Palm which costs 300$ per night. Get to the Galapagos. You won't regret it.

Today was monumental in the lives of two biology teachers and twelve passionate students as we were able to walk in the footsteps of Charles Darwin. We grabbed a quick breakfast at 3:30 a.m. and traveled to the Quito Airport, where we experienced a one-hour delay. Students made the most of their time by playing games, drawing, journaling and …
... elevated areas it becomes more tropical, misting on a regular basis and very easy to grow crops. At the marina we were given life jackets and ushered around sea lions into a dinghy. Our co-passengers included Jen and Mike a couple from Philadelphia in their thirties whose luggage got lost in the way down; Susan and Susan friends in their fifties/early sixties originally from Vancouver, though Susan 1 now lives in Mexico; and Carolina and Erich, a ...
... at the north side of the island and half way through our 40 minute drive back to town we had to stop for a giant turtle to cross the road. A great sight.
Claire had her sea urchin spikes removed with the aid of an anesthetic at the hospital when we reached town and we chilled out for the evening in anticipation for our four day cruise the next day. We thoroughly enjoyed the day trip and realised we were in for a real treat on these islands.
... we had stopped for a beer and snack at this lovely restaurant cafe earlier and had talked to the lady running it about our troubles and she had told us there was another major bank in town but at the other end away from the tourist area. We decided why not try it. In the end we could each only get $600 out (we needed $1100) but it was enough to satisfy Victor (Johnny!) since the boat comes back to town on Thursday and we could pay the remaining amount then. He kept my drivers license ...
