From the moment Byron (the caretaker) met us at the taxi station and escorted us via water taxi to Casa La Iguana, it felt as though we were in heaven. The incredible property is directly on the sparkling blue water and Mariana and Byron took care of us all week. Mariana cooked 3 meals every day for us and we felt like royalty. She happily obliged our request for fresh fish as well as many of the delicious National dishes. Each evening after a wonderful dinner we would enjoy the hot tub followed by card games at a table overlooking the water and the lights from the yachts. Byron was the utmost host and he enabled us to do and see amazing things on the island. He anticipated our every need. I used an English/Spanish translation app on my phone to assist in communication and was able to use the small amount of Spanish I do know. I was so inspired that I signed up for Spanish language classes when I got home. The house is gorgeously appointed and extremely comfortable. We enjoyed perusing all the artwork and collections in the house. We got at least 10 hours of sleep each night and had leisurely mornings after a spectacular breakfast, reading in the hammocks and watching the birds and boat activity on the water in front of the house. Sometimes we would walk to the beach and see amazing wildlife on the way as well as in the water. One day we took a walking tour and were able to swim and snorkel in a very deep and clear pool of water surrounded by rock walls. Truly unforgettable. The wildlife on the islands is world-renowned and we had adventures going to see the giant tortoises roaming free at the top of the mountains, as well as iguanas swimming in the ocean, sea lions, turquoise blue-footed boobies, sea turtles, brightly colored crabs and interesting indigenous flora. This was a bucket-list trip of a lifetime to the Galapagos in spectacular Equador. ”
Casa la Iguana was exceptional. The photos of the property are great and in person Casa la Iguana was even better. Best of all was the service we received from Marianna and Fernando. They truly made our stay at Casa la Iguana very relaxing and enjoyable. Every detail was taken care of for us, including Fernando greeting our arrival in town at the dock and Marianna cooking the most enjoyable breakfast and dinner for us. The art work and furnishing of Casa la Iguana kept us all very entertained. Not to mention the daily visits by sea lions, marine iguanas, variety of birds and sharks. Yes, in the evening small sharks would swim by the shore line lights looking for a tasty snack. The Galapagos Islands lived up to their representation. We followed Juan's recommendations for day trip operators. We swam with sea turtles, sea lions, marine iguanas, many schools of fish and small reef sharks. We saw the frigate bird blowing up their red breast and the blue footed booby displaying their feet in a mating dance. We took a local taxi from the dock area to Rancho Primicias where we saw many giant tortoise in their natural environment. Highly recommend a stay at Casa la Iguana. ”
We have take a lot great trips all over the world, but our recent trip to the Galapagos and Casa La Iguana was perhaps our best ever. First of all, the Galapagos Islands are almost like another planet. The landscape and wildlife is like nothing we have ever seen. Imagine waking up and finding a couple of giant iguanas on the porch to meet you pretty much every day. The house is without question the nicest accommodation in Porta Ayora. It is large, open air and the art is really cool. However, the most amazing feature is the staff. Alejandro (house manager) and Marianna (cook) could not have been better. Very attentive and the meals were great. We did not bother to eat out one night. Awesome trip and experience.”
