The boat set off at 2am and the rough sea had us rolling around in bed for a while but it settled down the further north we traveled. We were awake early and were greeted with a beautiful sunrise. The final part of our cruise was a sail around Daphne Mayor island to see the birds and sealions. There were mostly Nazca boobies (which are a bit rarer …
We were back at Galápagos Deli for breakfast, the freshly ground coffee and freshly baked bread were amazing and a great way to start the day.
After breakfast and a second coffee, we took a water taxi to the other side of the harbor to walk to Las Grietas. The water filled canyon was formed by the movement of the lava bed during a …
David was up early and went in search of coffee whilst Maria slept a bit longer. There were a couple of cafes in the next street that were doing takeaway coffee. Perhaps polystyrene cups are very expensive in Galapagos or maybe the woman just decided to rip off David but his coffee cost $2. A sit-in breakfast including coffee was only $3.
David was up early and out the door to be at the dive shop for 7am. Xavier was already at the shop when David arrived, trying on his wetsuit. Within minutes, David had all his gear handed to him and was trying it out for size.
Soon after, a girl came into the shop who had booked the previous day for the dive but asked if we would be …

This place is pretty cheep. Only 20$ per night for a very spacious room with hot water, tv, fridge, ac, etc. not so secure though. Although the door locks fine, anyone can just come in through the windows if you left them open for a bit of air. They also don't stop any of the outside noise. The room I'm in had 3 ac units hanging just outside my window. Why anyone needs ac in this weather is beyond me, it's like 20, maybe 22max. Anyway, it makes a fair amount of noise.
Staff are friendly and it's a good location.
