Floreana, surprisingly, has a population of about 170 permanent residents. There isn't much to do here if you chose to stay, but you can take a good few hikes (guided by a naturalist) and enjoy the peace of the island. There is some speedboats fom Puerto Ayora, but also you can charter your speedboat for your group.
The Wittmer family runs a small hotel and restaurant. There's also a phone there, the only one on the island. Here, rates for lodging can range from $45.00 to $80.00, depending on the time of year. If you're on a cruise, though, you'll bypass the little community and end up at La Loberia after a 30 minute walk. You also can visit el Asilo de la Paz, in the highlands, where it is the only source of water of Floreana, with History, fauna and flora.


On the north coat of Floreana is Post Office Bay, a charming place where you can follow the tradition of pirates and whalers of the past. There was a barrel where these gentlemen left mail, and every ship that passed by would look through the mail to see if they were heading to where the mail was addressed and then take it. The tradition lives on, and you can leave a letter for a loved one in Floreana. Hopefully, it will be delivered by someone in the next 5 to 10 days. We left a card for our niece, and, someone brought it over to the states and mailed it. Remember that it is much better to be hand delivered.


Devil's Crown is a must for the snorkelers out there! Don't miss it. This is a semicircle of rocks and one of the most magnificent diving and snorkeling places in the Galapagos Islands. In the later summer months, it's cold, but the shivers are well worth the view! You'll see sharks, schools of tropical fish, corals and countless other marine life.
