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
97% of our clients rated their experience with us as Excellent or Good.
"Lovely old place full of character. Service at breakfast was top-notch. Unfortunately the restaurant shut last year, the one across the street is very expensive and the area is difficult for strangers to safely find their way round in the dark."CC, Carnforth
