Centrally located in Santa Cruz island, Casa La Iguana offers an unsurpassed extraordinary experience for the adventurous soul who demands the very best.

Arranged over 2 levels, this imposing property of 1,000m² (10,700 sq ft) teems with style, rare decorative pieces and stylish architecture. Each room is a treasure trove waiting to be discovered.

The villa has been built to an exceptionally high standard of specifications by the owners, preserving the style and charm created by the natural wonder of the Galapagos and incorporating all the comforts of modern living.

Guided nature tours, sea kayaking and many other water activities start right at our doorstep. The local beach is a 5 minute walk and features calm, shallow water. Sea lions, marine iguanas and pelicans are often seen in the vicinity of the villa.

The villa comes with a staff of three: a cook, a cleaning lady, and the concierge.

At the end the day you wont need to worry about finding a good place to eat. The cook will suggest a menu of local dishes each day. She has assisted many great chefs over the years; she is always fine-tuning her art.

Our staff will always try to foresee all your needs.

Exquisite family home and gracious hospitality.

  • 5 of 5

Our group of 13 loved our stay at this beautiful family home. The villa is spacious and exquisitely decorated with large rooms and spaces indoors and out. Juan welcomed us to his families' lovely home and played a key role in planning our amazing 8 night stay. Juan and the staff, Alejandro. Mariana and Aurora cared for us in every way possible from arranging transfers and tours, to hiring a naturalist, suggesting yachts to hire for private tours, shopping daily for the freshest of foods, and doing laundry. We were spoiled with delicious meals every day, enjoying the beautiful waterfront, walking in the nature preserve, getting to know Ramona and other birds who visit daily, panga rides to and from town, day tours to other islands and the Highlands. We are thankful to the Altgelt family for opening their lovely home and to Juan and the staff for their service, hospitality and friendship. I highly recommend a stay at Casa La Iguana. You won't want to leave.

Remarkable experience in a luxury home

  • 5 of 5

We spent 10 days at the Casa La Iguana and we loved it!!! The house is right on the water, with an exquisite decoration, and it is very comfortable with 5 rooms with bathrooms en suite.

It also has beautiful views of the ocean and marina, outdoors jacuzzi and pool, and steps that go straight into the ocean where we would swim everyday and from where you could see all kinds of marine life.

Located very near the port by water taxi and a short stroll to "las grietas", and close to all the diving shops, restaurants and bars.

But above it all there is The staff (which is the best part) Alejandro, Mariana and Aurora would cook for our family everyday so we were spoiled with delicious breakfasts, lunchs and dinners, and we were able to eat plenty every day in the privacy of the home with our family. They also helped us to arrange some tours and general information on what to do and where to go.

Thank you Alejandro, Mariana and Aurora!!! You made our stay a truly remarkable experience.
