THANK YOU FOR EVERYTHING!! The trip was outstanding; all the arrangements were perfect – from the time we were met at the airport in Quito – to the time we were returned to the airport in Guayaquil.
Alan and I had a truly wonderful experience in Ecuador. Santiago and the rest of staff were excellent hosts, as was the La Pinta and its staff. We had an amazing trip.
The luxury Cruises like lapinta, Isabela, and santa cruz cruise are ultimate luxurious ships. these cruises will make your journey a pleasant one.
Hannah, we are back from our fabulous vacation, and I am so very thankful to you for setting it all up. Please provide me with your supervisor's name and email address so I can give you proper credit! Dilger couple, Custom Galapagos Land Based, March 2012

Villa Amarilla

Villa Amarilla

Located in Puerto Ayora on Santa Cruz Island, this private villa offers the best of the Galapagos for your family or large groups.

With classic island architecture, five spacious bathrooms, seven bathrooms, a fully equipped kitchen, swimming pool, Jacuzzi and outdoor barbecue for al fresco dining. The home caters to the most discerning travelers, allowing you to explore the Enchanted Islands at your leisure and in complete comfort.

From the villa you will be able to visit many of the same islands the yacht programs visit. The villa is located in a strategic area, allowing you to see and do much more than the traditional yacht excursions. You will be able to visit different islands in a boat during the day and return to your home base for a fabulous dinner on your villa terrace overlooking the ocean in the evening. Additionally, the villa-based experience is much more suitable for groups interested in personalizing activities and excursions and for active adventure families, since on a boat itinerary there is very little time to do additional activities. With a villa-based experience, the excursions are actually longer – you have more time to explore each place you visit. You will also be on your OWN time – rather than a regimented boat time and itinerary. You will have your own exclusive guide who works only with your family and caters to your specific interests, giving you the flexibility to modify the trip. Sample activities: kayak, diving, hiking to the top of the volcano, cabling down one of the lava tunnels, swimming with penguins, and much more.
