A beachfront boutique hotel in the heart of the Galapagos
“Paradise” is a description frequently used in tourism, even more so when it refers to beautiful island retreats.
Isabela is the largest and most captivating of the Galapagos islands. It houses a unique population of species endemic to the developing environments that set it apart from the archipelago.
A welcoming host to travelers, explorers, and the vibrant community of Puerto Villamil, the nature preserve of Isabela is also our home.
La Casa de Marita is a beautiful boutique hotel surrounded by lush vegetation, white sanded beaches, and the clear blue waters of the equatorial Pacific.
More than a comforting island retreat, La Casa de Marita is home where life is celebrated and the simple things, sublimed.
Yet, as ambitious or over-the-top as it may be, the term suits the island of Isabela very well.

Isabela is a welcoming host to explorers, travelers, and the vibrant community of Puerto Villamil. And it is also the island we call home.
