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.

This month has been super busy despite the fact that it was my first full month of summer vacation.
I started this month with a trip to Montanita with two other American families who live in Salinas. We all took a bus together and spent the day on the beach. While we were there, I had the opportunity to try …
... it is a total of about 10m deep and you can dive down to swim in the fresh water below, which is a weird sensation as it is a different temperature. After playing around in Las Grietas for a while we decided to check out Tortuga Bay and hopefully see some wild turtles swimming around. Unfortunately the water clarity was not great. Even so, I nearly swam into a turtle while I was snorkelling as I don’t think it saw me either! So the rest of the day we spent lying on the ...
... crew as passengers are leaving and then arriving and also the boat has to be restocked. A lot of this is done early in the morning. It was still super bumpy as we were anchored so the captain moved us into a slightly better position. Nevertheless it was still choppy as they loaded and unloaded things onto the dingies. Some people headed to the Charles Darwin Centre but because we had already been there, they had ...
... now, such as the female frigate that watched us snorkelling while sitting on the lava rocks. By the time we finished the day, the water seemed warmer than the air, especially once the sun went below the hills, and the wind picked up. The only down side is that it seems I have done something to the underwater camera and cannot charge the battery. Thank goodness it ...
We woke up at 6:30 and grabbed breakfast at our favorite place I Go Gringo. I'm in love with their fruta enselada y cafe, and we really like the owner who is always trying to help us out. We then grabbed a cab (it was pouring out) to Scuba Iguana where we were debriefed on our upcoming dive. We had about 10 people in the group - three Canadians, an English couple, an older English woman, a man from Uruguay, and one from Mexico. There were some very experienced divers and some newer ...
