The understated beauty of Puerto Baquerizo Moreno has cast many a spell over her beguiled visitors, a more idyllic little port town would be hard to find in Ecuador. Drawing confidence from naturally beautiful surroundings and her status as the capital of Galapagos Province, Baquerizo is a great place to chillax in comfort.
What I’m always struck by are the views, the not-very-strenuous hikes and a selection of luxurious hotels to unwind in. But Puerto Baquerizo Moreno can and does offer more than that. It is a great center for adventure activities such as scuba diving and surfing, searching out wildlife, and getting around the island of San Cristobal where it’s tucked away in the southwest corner.
