Casa Blanca is a cheerful, Moroccan-style family-run guest house  in Puerto Baquerizo Moreno, San Cristóbal Island. 

Casa Blanca lives up to its name: a gleaming white, Moorish-style guest house overlooking the harbour in Puerto Baquerizo Moreno, the ‘capital’ of the Galapagos Islands on San Cristobal.  The hotel started life as a bed and breakfast, with just a couple of guest rooms but now it has expanded into an agreeable small hotel, still managed by the same family.

The white-washed guest rooms are small and simply furnished,   but there are some nice little quirky artisan touches in primary colours with local paintings and towel art. There’s an independently-run café-restaurant on the property, which plays Ecuadorian and Caribbean music – sometimes quite loudly..

The location is handy for town and accessing the pretty boardwalks close to the waterfront, where iguanas and sea-lions are wont to doze.

What our clients say

  • Without a doubt, the Galapagos Islands were amazing. We feel very privileged.

  • Truly a unique lifetime experience, especially snorkelling for the first time with playful sea lions, sea turtles, penguins, rays and ‘tame’ wildlife.

    SD, Rochester
  • The most memorable experiences were walking in woodland with wild giant tortoise grazing in clearings, watching wild land iguanas amble through long grasses, peering at eye level into the nests…

    JW, Newcastle
  • Everything came up to expectations but the highlight was the Galápagos Islands

    SC, London, SW11

    SM, Wandsworth

Our Expert's Opinion

This cheerful, family owned property overlooks the sea in the tiny town of Puerto Baquerizo on San Cristobal. Rooms are cooled by the sea breeze and there is a great little café downstairs for snacks. Get there for sunset and enjoy a cold Ecuadorian pilsner as the sun goes down.
