Galapagos Singles Vacation
 

January 7th-17th

10 days, 10 nights,

all tours and meals in Galapagos,

plus air from LAX - $3,995

We did this trip last several years ago and it was an incredible experience. We've been getting more and more requests to repeat it, so here it is.

It's a great Galapagos package that you won’t find anywhere else. It’s a land-based package with accommodations right on 3 of the islands as well as 3-nights in Quito and 2-nights in Guayaquil, Equador!

First, we’ll have 3 nights in Quito where we can enjoy an amazing variety of adventure and nature tours. On our last trip we enjoyed mountain biking, horseback riding, hiking, river rafting and touring.  It’s a beautiful city with jungle activities surrounding it. click here for more info on the optional tours in Quito. Then, we fly on to the Galapagos for our 6-day package with our 3-island tour.

We start off all together at Baltra Island but since 16 is the maximum number of people this tour will accommodate due to the limited accommodations we will then split into 2 groups. One group will visit first Floreana island for 2 nights while the other group will visit Isabella Island for 2 nights. The groups will then switch and will end up all together again for night 5 of our Galapagos adventure in Santa Cruz.

You'll be able to snorkel with sea lions and penguins, see giant land turtles, exotic birds that are not afraid of humans, iguanas that swim, baby seals that come right up to you and more unique experience that you will only experience in the Galapagos. For a complete day by day itinerary with info on what you’ll see go to http://www.destinationecuador.com/galapagos-island-adventure-trip.html Our trip with this company is 5-nights and also a fraction of the price that you see. The lodge at Floreana (photo at left) is especially cool with direct oceanfront accommodations. You'll be watching sea lions play and even look at you while you sit on your deck!

We travel between the islands by high speed boat. Each journey is about 2 hours. In January the seas are relatively calm. There will also be an option to fly.

After our Galapagos portion of the trip we will then fly to Guayquil for 2 more days of adventure and beauty. This will be a first for us and it certainly seems worthwhile. There they have the Natural Reserve Manglares Churute, one of the finest and most diverse protected areas of the tropical lowlands of Ecuador, definitely a must for nature lovers. We will set up a tour to enjoy and explore this beautiful reserve. We will also set up a half-day city tour (included in your package).

This is really going to be an incredible singles vacation-- I can guarantee that,  much more interesting than a cruise, and less money too!  Total cost of this package with all air and tours is just $3,995.  That’s a terrific rate on this trip plus you will love spending each evening on the islands listening to all the sounds and being able to roam around. Cost also includes all food and tours while in Galapagos and daily breakfast in Quito and Guayaquil.   Sign up early as we are limited to just 32 people

FLOREANA

LAVA LODGE
Website

Tripadvisor Review Great reviews!

“A dream retreat on an unspoiled island” Anyone who is lucky enough to set foot on Floreana, and even luckier to stay over night at this simple but little piece of perfection should count their blessings. It's unspoiled and the wildlife both on land and below the water was amazing even by Galapagos standards.

The wildlife above and below the waves includes manta rays, sea lions, sharks, sea turtles and the Galapagos Giant Tortoises, with the bonus of the underwater world while snorkeling. Lava Lodge is only a few steps from the "loberia" where visitors can watch the island’s famous sea lions in natural surroundings.

A 5 minute walk brings you to the beach for a fantastic snorkeling experience with sea lions and sea turtles, once finished go back to the cabin for a quick shower, have a great meal and then watch a beautiful sunset which is followed by the clearest sky full of stars.
