Very small and uninspiring even if they did the explanations of what you were seeing in English. Unlike the Research Center on Santa Cruz which was outstanding. Give it a miss unless you’re really curious and have a good understanding of the Spanish language

The center is a short easy walk from the city. In the center you will learn a lot about the islands and how the people are working to both understand the significance of the environment as well as solutions. Many graphic displays show the history...More

you can visit Playa Mann + Interpretation Center + Playa Carola + Tijeretas all together, the trail starting from the interpretation center is very nicely marked, easy to walk, even for small kids, prepare enough water.

At first I didn't understand why our bed and breakfast host kept urging us to go. Don't judge it by its name. The center is like a mini museum with information and history about all the islands. Very informative. We appreciated learning about the history...More

When we went it was a big empty room with a cactus...nothing else at all. There were a few signs with minimal information on the walls. That was it. Maybe we went on the wrong day?

This place shares information about how the islands were discovered and how this island developed and the issues it dealt and continues to deal with. Lots of information in English!

Took a taxi out ($1.50 USD) and walked back. Great center to understand the history of the Galapagos and the challenges they are facing. Highly recommend!

Came up here because it’s the only geocache on the island. Great walk from our hotel. The area is well maintained and there is some amazing views. It was nice to get out and away from the town and see some nature.
