Best Places To Stay In The Galapagos Islands

The Galapagos Islands are explored by most by joining, or chartering, a boat that cruises around the islands giving you an insight into these unique islands. There are a huge variety of boats that range in levels of luxury, length of cruise, itinerary and price. The boats are the best way to see the island as you cruise around with a naturalist guide. Alternatively you can opt for one of the eco hotels on the island. For further ideas and information please get in touch and we can send you our Galapagos guide and/or speak all about the options.

Hotel del Parque

Hotel del Parque is the best boutique hotel in Guayaquil. This 19th Century building that is located in a charming neighbourhood is the perfect hotel for those seeking character, super service and an ideal location pre or post Galapagos.

MV Origin

The MV Origin is a first class boat that has recently been awarded Relais & Chateaux status. The MV Origin is our favourite Galapagos boat that truly offers a first class experience of the magical islands.

MV Theory

The MV Theory is set to launch in March 2019 and like its sister boat, the MV Origin, we expect this to be one of the absolute best Galapagos boats on every level.

Ocean Spray
