One afternoon I rented a bike in Puerto Villamil on Isla Isabela. To rent a bike was $2.50 per hour (July 2011), and the bike was okay to use on the bumpy dirt road to Muro de Las Lagrimas. There are several places of interest to stop at along the way and the best is to see them on the way to Muro de Las Lagrimas as it is more uphill that way. Along the road I also saw a few Giant Tortoises, which was fantastic!
There was no lock on the bike but I was told it didn’t matter as no one would steal it anyway, it’s safe on Isla Isabela. I used the bike for a bit more than 3 hours and was charged for three hours, so I paid $7.50. There are no paved roads on Isla Isabela and not too many roads either.
You can also rent bikes in Puerto Ayora and Puerto Baquerizo Moreno, but I didn’t. If I come back to visit the island independently I would though. For example rent a bike in Puerto Ayora and visit places in the Highlands of Santa Cruz and the beach at El Garrapatero.
