Puerto Ayora Santa Cruz is generally the jumping off point for most people visiting the Galapagos. :PPinPinPinPinPinPin2. food and dining // puerto ayora restaurantsWhen looking around at different restaurants in Puerto Ayora, a lot of the menus were similar and didn’t interest us. Also, there were oddly a lot of italian restaurants in the Galapagos – none of which seemed very good. Puerto Ayora is the biggest city in all of Galapagos, which means all the other ones are super tiny! Two days was PLENTY of time to explore Puerto Ayora and kept it enjoyable.
