Being the largest of the Galapagos Islands, Isla Isabela is one of the most intriguing tropical islands in the world. Approximately 1 million years old, the island is composed of six volcanoes, all of which but one are active. The unique geology of the island has drawn visitors from all over the world to see the surface uplifts at Bolivar Channel and Urvina Bay, as well as the incredible tuff cones at Tagus Cove. Also enjoy the amazing wildlife that dominates Isabela, including the famous Galapagos tortoises, as well as hundreds of tropical bird species, penguins, marine iguanas, Darwin’s finches, and cormorants. Also be sure to check out the tortoise breeding center.

Along with incredible flora and fauna to explore, visitors who wish to stay on Isabela will find the settlement of Puerto Villamil to be laidback and welcoming. The white, sandy beaches and quiet lagoons are the quintessential Galapagos experience.

Practical Info

If you are planning on visiting Isabela Island, keep in mind that the nearest airport is on Balta Island, out of the city of Puerto Ayora. There are many options for boat transport between the islands, however, ranging from group tours to private yachts.
