If you can’t or don’t want to go by bike, your only other option is to walk. Forget any references you may see about taking a taxi all the way to the wall from Puerto Villamil, the road has been closed to vehicular traffic for...More
This tour was part of our package with a tour guide, but after a day of volcano hike, I was kindda tough for me. I noticed that people were biking on that trail. It took me an hour to get there and another hour back....More
An interesting trip for a bit of dark Ecuadorian history which is openly acknowledged. It takes a confident country to admit it's mistakes, and Ecuador has this confidence. The lookouts are great, and you pass through a number of interesting viewpoints along the way. We...More
I was GRANDPAcking through the Galapagos and went on a few DIY trips including this one.

this is an interesting piece of history for this island but when we decided to bike there, (an easy 4K....) we did not know that it would be thru sand and uphill... it was quite the ride. We did see marine iguana's and tortoises along...More
We rented bikes which were $3 per hour. The ride to the Wall of Tears is up hill, which makes it a great ride back to town! Lots of tortoises on the way and plenty of spots to stop for photos. It is around a...More
The bike ride here was not an easy one for someone who hadn’t been on a bike since I was a teenager. But to arrive and see this wall and realise the history was worth it. Also meeting a wild tortoise on the way there...More
