Ready for the adventure of a lifetime? Join me for a very special, all inclusive trip to the Galapagos Islands. All the preparation and planning has been done for you. This will be an intimate trip, as there is only space for 6-12 guests. Think sea turtles, wild tortoises, seals and snorkeling. We are going to experience all that these magical islands have to offer!
The lodge features six spacious bedrooms each with private bathrooms, hot water, air conditioning, WiFi, TV/DVD, and direct access to a private balcony. The main living area on the first floor comprises a large open plan lounge with stone fireplace, dining room and kitchen. A large south facing terrace offers spectacular views over surrounding farmland, Galapagos National Park and Galapagos Marine Reserve to Floreana Island.
Your non refundable deposit of $500 holds your space in one of the 6 rooms available.

Transfers to and from the airport (on arrival and departure days only)
Ecuador and the islands use the US dollar. So for many of us, no money changing needed! There are ATMs in the airports in Ecuador and in Puerto Ayora on the islands but we do recommend that you bring about $300 in cash.
There is a fee required to enter the Galapagos National Park. Once you disembark at Baltra you will go through a combination passport control/park fee collection point. You must have the fee, which is $100US on you in cash when you arrive on the islands for the park and $5US cash for an airport exit fee.
There is no visa needed for US citizens to visit Ecuadaor (whooohooo!). You simply need to ensure that your passport is valid for at least 6 months from your date of arrival. Citizens of all other countries should check with their consulates as to their visa requirements, if any.
