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
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.
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.
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.

see go to http://www.destinationecuador.com/galapagos-island-adventure-trip.html
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!
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.
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

Review Great reviews!
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
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.
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.
