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 …
... so it was just a mass of black from afar and didn’t appear to be alive. Well they were definitely alive.
I got some pictures of the iguanas and then we headed over to the cove. I didn’t feel like swimming, but Raz jumped in for a quick swim. A guy came down the beach and told us that there was a small shark coming toward Raz, so he might want to watch out. I followed it down the beach, and when it finally got close to ...
... on the outer side. The group of sea lions sunning themselves on the sand were watched closely by a group of half a dozen sharks, just hoping the babies would venture in a little too far. After lunch we headed back to Santa Cruz but to a beach around to the east. It was a stunning, white sand beach with bright turquoise water. The ships captain saw humpback whales but we didn't. He only waited a couple of minutes to see of it would breach again and then took off. Back in Puerto Ayora ...
... the water for the next week, we saw Blue Footed Boobies, Sealions, Marine Iguanas, Sallylightfoot Crabs and Pelicans. Everyone was a bit dumbstruck seeing so much, so soon and so close.
On the boat we had a quick briefing before being allocated our cabins. We were in Cabin 1 - front right on the boat, furthest from the engine but right next to the anchor. The cabin was small but not cramped, had a window out to sea and sufficient drawers and cupboards ...
