The tour takes half a day. Book in advance directly through a tour operator like Rosedelco since slots may get filled a few days before a tour. We were late, so booked indirectly through one of the local travel agencies, which resulted in extra $5-10 pp. We paid $80 pp. However, our tour guide, Fabian, was excellent, showing great passion...

Amazing tunnels formed by volcanic lava, wind and water erosion surrounded by water and topped with cactus. I'll meet seahorses, turtles, sharks and plenty of fishes while snorkelling around. You need some company get you here. My suggestion: ROSEDELCO! The tour takes around 5 hours, but believe me ... it's worth it!

A great trip! Saw so much! But compared to the Tintoreras trip- we actually saw a lot less. Which surprised us. But the guides were great and it was a full day of blue footed boobies and penguins and HUGE manta rays. Definitely the highlight. Worth it. But I thought Tintoreras was better. And closer too!

Didn't scuba, but the snorkeling and walking were very unique and interesting. We were on a boat tour and we went by panga to explore.

The land topography is very unique. We snorkeled with sea turtles, spotted rays, and reef sharks, all so close to us! I would highly recommend this trip. We were the only people on both the island landing and the snorkeling area!

This area is incredibly striking. A place where the lava tubes meet the ocean. The snorkling here offers sharks, turtles, seahorses, pengiuns, and a plethora of beautiful fish, We went with wooden house on the tour. We were the first out there and had the place to ourselves for a little while. The tour took us to two separate locations,... More

You can find this day tour last minute on Isabela. We got it for 100.00 pp and it was a bit more than other paid (I had heard the same trip went for 85.00). We were happy with what we paid once we got out there. We snorkeled at a spot before getting to Los Tuneles (forgot the name but... More

Nice scenery on land and a great spot to tick off a lot of underwater wildlife, but not worth it if you've been on a cruise because you will have already been to better spots. BEWARE: DO NOT BOOK THROUGH HOSTEL LOJA OR ON THE POSEIDON BOAT. The guide (Fabian Salazar, license no. 127) did not respect the park or... More
