Friendly and welcoming family-run guesthouse in a peaceful location, not far from the small settlement of Puerto Baquerizo Moreno on San Cristóbal island.
The friendly and welcoming family-run Hotel Pimampiro is about 10 minutes’ walk from the port of Baquerizo Moreno on San Cristóbal island. It's a peaceful location but the facilities of the small settlement are not far away.
The gated property offers bright and cheerful, if fairly basic accommodation within a group of whitewashed bungalows that overlooks a small but attractive pool with loungers. Hammocks line the sunny verandas. There's a hearty breakfast, served communally around a long table, and guests are also able to use the kitchen or borrow the hotel's bikes.
San Cristóbal island is the fifth largest and second most populated of the Galápagos archipelago. The northeast is dominated by arid lava flows while the hilly southwest is carpeted in vegetation and farmland.

Most Memorable Moment: Swimming with sea lions, following hundreds of dolphins on the boat, diving with penguinsKH, London
The Galápagos cruise was just so good. I don't think I can remember enjoying a recent trip so much.NJ, London
Without a doubt, the Galapagos Islands were amazing. We feel very privileged.SM, South Croydon
A couple of days in the Galapagos when we didn't see any other people. Intimacy of swimming with sealions, turtles & being chased in the water by a flightless cormorant!TC, St Albans
It's very difficult to pick out one thing. Seeing the animals everywhere we went was amazing. We fell in love with the sea-lions. I loved the walk up to the view over Pinnacle Rock and then being on the beach by the rock afterwards. Seeing a white tipped shark from the beach was something I never expected.NR, Swindon
The Galapagos Islands are spectacular and we are so glad we had the time to visit. After a busy four days onboard La Pinta it was good to have a days break at Finch Bay. It was certainly a well needed rest for us both.EK, Saltash
The sealions were brilliant fun and the pups so cute, and so close. All the wildlife was great and seeing it all up close as nothing is afraid of humans, was amazing.KH, Weybridge
Snorkelling with penguins, turtles, sea lions and marine iguanas. Unbeatable.DJ, Saltash
The Galápagos offer amazing access to stunning wild-life and a great week living on a boat.PJ, London
The wildlife in the Galápagos was so totally unbothered by our presence.SB, Leyland
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 of red footed boobies, watching penguins and sea lions hunting fish whilst snorkelling, and as a finale, watching huge sharks circling in the boat lights during our final evening meal.JW, Newcastle
Being able to visit the Galápagos with a reputable company was a highlight - the boat was fantastic and everything about the holiday was first rate.KF, Norfolk
The Galápagos - just breathtaking - 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 of red footed boobies, watching penguins and sea lions hunting fish whilst snorkelling, and as a finale, watching huge sharks circling in the boat lights during our final evening meal.JW, Newcastle
The trip to to the Galapagos was the highlight undoubtedly - and the memories will remain with us for a long time -along with the huge photographic archive taken!CG, Stratchcarron
So many (highlights) it's hard to single some out. The Galapagos are a joy from start to finish.JC, Littlehampton
The highlight was always going to be the Galápagos and it lived up to our expectations. It is a unique place and unlike our last visit we came away with hundreds of photographs to remind us of the trip.NW, Wells
The Galápagos Islands were out of this world.DJ, Chesterfield
Highlight of your trip?: Snorkeling in the Galapagos
Galapagos Islands wildlife, guide and boat. To be so close to birds and animals is a privilege and to see such pristine beaches and scenery is lovely.SJ, Winchelsea
The Galapagos tour was our highlight because of the proximity and abundance of the wildlife.AB, St Neots
Galapagos was incredible. We loved it. The guides were all excellent and we especially enjoyed having guides with a naturalist qualification.LE, Poole
The Galápagos Islands are a wonderland. If I say that of all places I have visited in the world only the Grand Canyon is their equal in impact and living up to expectation you will have an idea of how they affected both of us.DW Lingfield
The close proximity of the wildlife in the Galapagos is amazing.DW, Stevenage
Highlight?: Probably a sea lion playing underneath me and showing off whilst I was snorkelling. Beautiful.DD, Uxbridge
The Galápagos trip was very sympathetic to the environment and local habitat.AD, Dublin
The cabin upgrade was definitely worth the extra money, much more space and good sized windows!LF, Alderley Edge
The attention to environmental concerns on the Galápagos was first rate. The national park is a pristine environment and every effort is being made to keep it that way.PT, Peterborough
No-one should consider a Galápagos cruise of less then 8 days. We both had a holiday of a lifetime.LF
How close we could get to the wildlife in the Galápagos.DG, Neston
A truly unique place on earth.KS, Southampton
