Torres Mar Galapagos
Overall, the best VRBO we have ever done! John and Donna Garate were immediately responsive to our requests. John arranged and booked 4 excursions for our family of 4 adults - all top rated and all wonderful! The apartment is clean, 4-5 blocks from the waterfront (walking distance), 2 bedroom and one bath, nice kitchen and living area - spacious. Excellent for our family. The Wi-fi is good and the deck on top is cooled by the ocean breeze and has a nice view. We had housekeeping service daily and had our clothes washed twice for a tiny fee. Galápagos Islands are cash only. You can pay with CC, but there is a 12-20% additional fee (charged by the CC, and the merchant needs to charge you.) John helped us get more cash, eg, which ATM to use. Highly recommend this VRBO!!!
