A Leisurely Twist on Exploring the Galápagos: New Excursions From The Finch Bay Eco Hotel
This year’s winner of the World Travel Awards “South America's Leading Green Hotel” on Santa Cruz Island refreshes guest experience with new programming for exploring the archipelago
Located in a small sandy cove in Puerto Ayora on the island of Santa Cruz, The Finch Bay Eco Hotel has blossomed over a dozen years of operation to become the leader that others follow in the Galápagos. Along the way, management noticed that guests prefer to explore the natural wonders of the islands directly from the hotel at a relaxed pace.
Result? New programing brimming with natural encounters on land and at sea as well as time to kick back, enjoying the beach, lounging by the pool, or engaging in activities such as kayaking, surfing, mountain biking and nature walks.
Available from this month onwards, The Finch Bay Eco Hotel’s new programming will unfold over four, five or eight days. Programs are suitable for travelers of all ages:
· Yacht Excursions Aboard the Sea Lion – Day-long and multi-day yachting adventures to the islands of North Seymour, Santa Fe, Bartolomé, South Plaza – all within the National Park – with comfortable onboard facilities and freshly-prepared lunch included.
· Land Excursions Across Santa Cruz Island – Destinations for wildlife viewing and engagement include Manzanillo with its giant tortoises in the wild, the Pit Craters, Divine Bay and Tortuga Bay, with lunch and round-trip transportation provided.
· Charles Darwin Research Station – No visit to Santa Cruz Island would be complete without a visit to this biological research station operated the Charles Darwin Foundation on the shore of Academy Bay.
· Plus – Free time scheduled daily for guests to enjoy as they like, dinner every evening at the hotel, greater emphasis on education and environmental interpretation through the hotel’s new Expedition Leader, additional activities such as diving through the hotel’s popular Discover Scuba Diving course, and accommodation-
Guests can count on the same wonderful cuisine, warm and inviting service, and authentic eco-consciousness that have garnered The Finch Bay Eco Hotel Traveler’s Choice Awards from Trip Advisor in 2013 and 2014, and designation as “South America’s Leading Green Hotel” from the World Travel Awards in 2012, 2013 and 2014.
