Sulfur Mines - Other Activity Puerto Villamil - Ecuador

Deep in the interior of Isabela Island are some old sulfur mines that it’s possible to visit. You’ll need to take a tour from Puerto Villamil to get there, because there is some National Park paperwork that must be provided for permission and getting there is hard. Most tours go by horseback after an approximately 45 minute drive from Puerto VIllamil. As a result of all this, very few visitors ever get there.

It’s possible to camp here, but again, you’ll need a guide and permission. The mines themselves are cool, with interesting sulfur formation. Nearby are several steaming fumaroles. The trail leads through a forest of introduced Guava trees: the Park Service is trying to remove them, but it’s not an easy task.
