Finch Bay es uno de los pocos hoteles de Galápagos con frente a la playa. De hecho, este hecho lo coloca en una clase por sí solo, ya que es el único hotel en la isla Santa Cruz con una playa justo afuera de su puerta principal. El hotel, que debe su nombre a los abundantes pinzones descubiertos en la zona por Charles Darwin, está situado en una ubicación privilegiada entre manglares. Además de tener la playa a pocos pasos, los huéspedes pueden disfrutar del atento servicio del hotel, la privacidad, el entorno natural y una piscina (donde constantemente visitan garzas y patos salvajes para darse un chapuzón). En consecuencia, el encantador retiro ha sido reconocido como uno de los hoteles más exclusivos de Galápagos debido a sus prácticas ecológicas y su capacidad de sumergir a los huéspedes en la auténtica experiencia de Santa Cruz. El albergue ecológico tiene capacidad para 54 huéspedes con 6 suites y 21 habitaciones. Su diseño y construcción fueron cuidadosamente planificados para lograr un impacto mínimo en su sitio. De hecho, verás cómo la vida silvestre se ha integrado al complejo hasta el punto de que las iguanas marinas toman el sol justo al lado de la entrada principal. De hecho, podríamos decir que el hotel está más que rodeado de naturaleza: es parte de ella.

AM: Today, you will again have your choice of going on a full-day cruise, or a full-day land-based exploration excursion, or spending the day near the hotel relaxing and engaging in outdoor sporting activities. Should you choose to go on a full-day cruise, a Santa Fe Island yacht excursion can be one of your options. Once disembarking on this island, you will find that a short trek leads through woods of Opuntia cacti and Palo Santo trees, where land iguanas (endemic to Santa Fe), lava lizards and colonies of sea lions can be observed. On Santa Fe, you will also have a chance to swim and snorkel. Alternatively, you may choose to go on a full-day land-based exploring excursion or stay on Santa Cruz Island to simply relax on the hotel’s sun deck or participate in a number of outdoor sports activities and/or land excursions.

PM:

Full-day of exploring by yacht OR Full-day land-based exploration excursion on Santa Cruz Island OR Day of Leisure

AM: Today you will have your choice of going on your single full-day cruise on board the hotel's Sea Lion yacht, or going on a full-day land-based exploration excursion or spending the day near the hotel relaxing and engaging in outdoor sporting activities. Should you choose to go on your second of two full-day cruises, you will take a yacht excursion to a nearby island (North Seymour, Bartolome, South Plaza or Santa Fe Island). Should you choose to visit Bartolome Island, once you land you can enjoy the spectacular Galapagos views as you ascend the hillsides of this unique island. On Bartolome, you will also find fascinating lava formations and tuff cones, in addition to sunning sea lions and penguins swimming in the vicinity of emblematic Pinnacle Rock. You can also enjoy snorkeling or swimming from the beach. Should you choose to go on a full-day land exploring excursion today, we will head for Tortuga Bay, located to the southwest of Puerto Ayora on Santa Cruz Island. Its name means “turtle”, and the island received this moniker because it is sea turtles favorite place to lay their eggs. The stunning white sand beach is considered by many the most beautiful in the Galapagos archipelago. The beach is reached via a marked and cobbled two-kilometer path that is excellent bird-watching, as you can find plenty of Darwin’s finches and other sea birds here. Arriving at Tortuga Bay, you will see that this is a great place to kayak, snorkel and surf! The headquarters of the Galapagos National Park Service and The Charles Darwin Research Station are located side by side here on the outskirts of Puerto Ayora. There is also an interpretation center open to the public, and you can also visit the tortoise rearing program (those guests who do not have the opportunity to explore the highlands of Santa Cruz and see tortoises in their natural habitat will have the chance to see tortoises here). For those who have already seen them in the wild, a visit to the Center will expand your knowledge of this unique, iconic Galapagos creature. Alternatively, you may choose to stay closer to the hotel to simply relax on the sun deck or participate in a number of outdoor sports activities.

PM:

Los Gemelos Craters Excursion – Shared Transfer to Baltra Island Airport – Departure

AM: We will leave the hotel early in the morning for an excursion to the twin Los Gemelos craters in the highlands. Concluding this amazing experience in the Galapagos Islands, you will then be transferred to the Baltra Island airport for your return flight to the Ecuadorian mainland. Enjoy your last look back at the “enchanted islands,” a unique paradise with inspiring natural wonders.

star rating  Gran viaje, excelente servicio  - Los tours que nos recomendaron y que hicimos fueron muy buenos. Muy buena atencion y servicio.

También quiero mencionar que uno de nuestros vuelos se atrasó y ellos movieron mar y tierra para que no se perdiera el vuelo. Se terminó cambiando el vuelo gracias a ellos y hasta en el aeropuerto de galápagos ya sabían de nuestro caso. Muy agradecidos con Surtrek.
