Puerto Ayora

3.7
World heritage site · Nature & Parks · Geologic Formations
The largest settlement in the Galapagos, Puerto Ayora offers visitors to the islands an array of facilities and things to do. The town serves as the main port of call for many tourists, and the pleasant waterfront plays home to a significant population of sun-loving sea lions and waterfowl. Attractions in Puerto Ayora include white sand beaches, snorkel-friendly gorges, and even a research station named in honor of Charles Darwin--all within easy reach of the town center. For access to the area's wild coastal ecosystems, arrange a boat tour of Santa Cruz island and the surrounding Galapagos islands. Bars, restaurants, and shops, though on a small scale, provide decent entertainment for a town of this size. Find what you're looking for from your Puerto Ayora holiday, by planning the whole thing with us using our handy Ecuador trip planner.
