Day 1

 Option 1: Itinerary for flights arriving at Baltra before 11:00 AM
At Baltra airport, an English speaking guide will pick you up to go to the port of Puerto Ayora (about 1 hour) where you can enjoy your lunch. Around 02:00 PM, you’ll take the small public speedboat to Isabela Island (about 2,5 hours). This can be a bumpy, wet ride so provide yourself a waterproof jacket and motion sickness medication if necessary. Upon arrival on Isabela Island, a driver will pick you up and you’ll visit the Flamingo Lagoon (short visit). After that, the driver will drop you off at your hotel.
Accommodation in Hotel San Vicente or similar.

Option 2: Itinerary for flights arriving at Baltra after 11:00 AM
If your flight is scheduled to arrive after 11:00 AM, you’ll stay at Santa Cruz Island on the first day because the last speedboat to Isabela Island leaves around 02:00 PM. Please note that you won’t have lunch if you arrive after 02:00 PM. If you have time you have an activity, either Tortuga Bay or Charles Darwin Station.
Accommodation in Hotel Fernandina or similar. 

Your Organizer

Rebecca Braak
I grew up in Zutphen, a small town in the Netherlands, where I was riding horses daily. At the age of 18 I moved to Amsterdam where I studied Business Administration at the University of Amsterdam and fairly quickly completed this study. “This was a great period of my life, full of wonderful friends. Immediately after my MBA graduation I got a wonderful position at my dream company KLM – Royal Dutch Airlines. But something very important was missing in my life; Horses! So I decided to go to Ecuador for three months, volunteering on a horse ranch in the Andes. I felt wonderful and happy at this beautiful Ecuador, so I have decided to move to Quito and start my own business” – Since 2014 I'm the owner of Rebecca Adventure Travel, with a staff of 12 persons in Quito.
