My Galapagos Holiday

Galapagos Islands add-on

To make your South America trip even more memorable, we also operate the No. 1 ranked hotel on Isabella Island, the largest, least populated, purest, most protected island in the Galapagos archipelago. This is like no other place on earth. We offer an easy 7+ night add on to our Peru Adventure for you to kick back and relax at our boutique beach hotel.

Surrounded by white powder sand beaches, turquoise waters brimming with wildlife right on your doorstep, and overlooked by the Sierra Negra dormant volcano, hotel locations don’t come much more dramatic than this. Most exciting for visitors is the lack of fear and even curiosity with which the Galápagos animals typically regard humans. Incredible, up-close encounters are the norm here. If we are talking: once-in-a-lifetime.…this is it !

La Casa de Marita is much more than a boutique hotel in one of the planet's most unique destinations. It’s a celebration of the incomparable flora, fauna, and wildlife of this, the most unspoiled of the Galapagos islands.

After an easy flight from Lima to Ecuador, the next day you take the flight to Galapagos. Relax & enjoy the views from this fabulous hotel and its restaurant, where each imaginative dish is served using fresh ingredients caught, grown and harvested locally in the islands and on Marita’s plantation. http://www.galapagosisabela.com/la-casa-de-marita.html

This is the ideal vacation opportunity: a top-rated hotel in one of the world’s most beautiful locations. Isla Isabela is the largest of the Galapagos islands, and it’s also the most unspoiled. It’s a seahorse-shaped island formed by six dormant volcanoes, the tallest of which is Volcan Wolf at 5,600 feet. As the biggest island, it offers the most to explore and do, whether you’re more interested in following in Darwin’s naturalist footsteps or getting active with snorkeling, kayaking, horseback riding and hiking expeditions.

Take a tour to the Wall of Tears and along the way discover flamingo lakes, beaches with sea lions, hundreds of really big iguanas, and giant tortoises, and stop at some of the island’s stunning viewpoints. Walk the 1200m long board walk and visit the giant tortoise breeding center. Visit Las Tintoreras, where white tip sharks come to rest, or put on your snorkeling gear and swim with eagle rays and sea turtles – in a separate area away from the sharks, of course!

Choose how energetic you want to be by taking your pick of the many available activities, or enjoy our exclusive and most popular adventure in the Islands, combining daily kayaking, mountain biking, trekking, snorkeling, and nature exploration activities. Get wet and visit underwater sights like Isla Tortuga, where you can see hammerheads, mantas, eagle rays, tropical fish and turtles as they coast along beside beautiful coral.

See penguins, iguanas, cormorants, pelicans, giant Galapagos tortoises, finches, and a variety of other birds, literally on your doorstep. For the botanists and plant-lovers, the vegetation here is remarkable and varied, changing dramatically from the coastal areas to the foot of the volcanoes.

Located off the coast of Ecuador, the Galapagos group of over 20 volcanic islands is one of the places that led Charles Darwin to lay down his theory of evolution, and over 95% of the island group is a national park, marine reserve and biosphere reserve. Our unbelievable 7-night visit is the best way to experience this incomparable destination and bring back memories that will last a lifetime!

Clients are responsible for booking their own travel to Isabela Island although our reservations staff are always more than happy to advise and help. Travel usually involves an international flight to Ecuador (typically Guayaquil or the capital, Quito), then a local flight to Baltra Island or San Cristobal Island. From there, a short inter-island hop to Isabela is available.
