A mural in Puerto Ayora, Santa Cruz depicting the history of the islands

When I tell stories about my trip, most people are surprised to find out that people live on the Galápagos Islands. I share these photographs to show the three towns we stayed in; all with populations, hotels, restaurants and modern amenities.

Puerto Ayora on the island of Santa Cruz is the largest of the three towns. It’s home to the Charles Darwin Research Station, where Lonesome George lives. Puerto Baquerizo Moreno on the island of San Cristóbal is the island’s second largest city. It’s the capital city and home to the university and a fantastic interpretation center. Puerto Villamil on the island of Isabela is a smaller, sleepier town on the archipelgo’s largest island. The streets are sand and the people are beautiful. If you go to Bar de Beto (arguably the island’s best bar) you might even get some chewed gum in your popcorn. Yum!
