Drinking and nightlife in The Galápagos Islands

  • Nightlife in Puerto Villamil

    Casa Rosada

    The highlight of Isabela's nightlife is this laid-back, dig-your-feet-in-the-sand beach bar next door to Caleta Iguana Hotel & Surf Camp. A youthful crowd gathers around the outdoor tables (or the firepit as night falls), listening to tropical grooves or diving in the sand during regular volleyball games. It also has food for breakfast, lunch and dinner, plus occasional live music.

    Bongo Bar

    What nightlife there is in Puerto Ayora centers mainly on this bar, a trendy 2nd-floor spot replete with flat-screen TVs, music and a lubricated mix of hip locals, guides and tourists. Surprisingly, you'll also find some of the best sushi on the islands here (rolls $10 to $14).

    Iguana Rock

    Iguana Rock draws a festive, dance-loving crowd on weekends, and remains a laid-back spot during the week. It has a pool table, salsa beats and even gets an off-island band or two.
