Welcome to Caleta Iguana (Casa Rosada)



The Hotel

Caleta Iguana (Casa Rosada) is a small popular hotel located in Puerto Villamil- Isabela, in the Galapagos Islands.

The hotel has 400 m2 (4,300 sqf) with 7 ample rooms and our private beach has 600 m2 where you can enjoy our bar, volleyball court, and recliner chairs. Toilets are available. 

In the first floor of the hotel we have 2 rooms and some of our biggest social areas. We have a very large lounge, a book exchange library, and board games. There is also a dinner table and a very large kitchen with everything you might need (as well as a fridge just for our guests). Outside, towards the beach we have a terrace with a Grill and BBQ area with tables, chairs, hammocks and the ocean just a few feet away.

Cuarto 4 Delante Casa

On the second floor you will find most of the rooms (5),  and a huge deck for watching the amazing scenery.

The house has a unique energy and soul which is transmitted back to its guests. It is one of the most looked after accommodation options in the island and the Galapagos. It has a long history and interesting facts. It was in this house where the famous music group "Iguana Men of Galapagos" used to write and practice their songs. This was their place for inspiration. Iguana Men was lead by Gringo Juan (John Vokes), who died in 2007.

At the outer part of the house we have built an Iguana Pit with many volcanic rocks to ensure a safe area where iguanas can breed, rest, drink water and enjoy the warm sun. You will see many guides with tourists coming by to take pictures of all the iguanas we have living here. We have now over 200 iguanas around the house! You will be able to meet Tyson, one of the oldest and biggest iguanas around...

We also have many other animals visit us, such as "Guapo" (handsome), a Galapagos Hawk which used to belong to Gringo Juan. From the hammocks, deck and rooms you will aslo be able to observe many of the amazing Galapagos wildlife such as sea lions, Blue Footed & Nazca Boobies, frigate birds, rays, turtles and more.

Happy Hour & Bar

We Run a Happy Hour from 5-7pm where you can come and enjoy delicious cocktails (such as our fresh passion-fruit daiquiris), drinks, smoothies and snacks! We often have live music and you will be able to listen to some of Iguana Men / Gringo Juan’s best tracks as well as music from around the world.
