Puerto Ayora Shopping - Shopping Puerto Ayora - Ecuador

For the most part, if you’re shopping in Puerto Ayora, you’re looking either for supplies, such as sunscreen, or souvenirs. Things like medicine, food and sunscreen are available, but expensive, so stock up on those things before you go.

There are plenty of souvenir shops in Puerto Ayora, each of them selling coffee mugs, T-shirts, postcards and other touristy stuff, most of which seem to have some sort of Booby joke printed on them. Feel free to stock up on such things for friends and family back home. It’s a big boost to the local economy.

Lately, there has been an increase in high-end shops specializing in jewelry, art and quality handicrafts from Ecuador and elsewhere. You can’t miss the shops, which line Charles Darwin Avenue from the pier to the research station. 

Shopping, Shopping Info.
