Galápagos Islands
Family
7 Days / 6 Nights
Introduction
The Galápagos Islands can really push a family’s “happy buttons.” The close-up looks at penguins and iguanas and sea lions are almost too cool to believe. The landscapes are like nothing you’ve ever seen, and the climate is great. Too bad for most visitors that they tour the islands by cruise ship. Everybody can get stir-crazy in the limited space. And the fun of ship-to-shore Zodiac rides wears off after 4 or 5 trips. That’s why we prefer an island-based Galápagos family vacation. There’s plenty of elbow room to walk, swim in our boutique hotels’ pools, and watch for blue-footed boobies out the back door. You can go sea-kayaking right from the dock outside your door. We have easy access to clear lagoons for snorkeling, great trails for mountain-biking, and white beaches for lounging. Even if you weren’t bumping into a titanic tortoise or a strutting flamingo at every turn, this would still be a fantastic active family vacation. And unlike those tourists marooned on their boats, we get to hang out with the locals and get a feel for what human life is like among the wildlife!
Itinerary at a glance
DAYS 1-3 - ISABELA
On Isabela Island (3 nights), we’ll go mountain biking through lava rocks to white sand beaches where your family and the curious Galápagos penguins check each other out at close range. Take a dip in our hotel’s infinity pool before a gourmet dinner. On a totally awesome walk through a wild lava landscape, we look right over the rim into Volcán Sierra Negra, the second largest volcanic caldera on earth!

DAYS 4-7 - SANTA CRUZ
On Santa Cruz Island (3 nights), we head up to the highlands to walk with 500-pound giant tortoises in their natural habitat. We also explore lava tunnels where legend says the pirates hid their gold. Right from our hotel’s dock, we go kayaking in waters where manta rays glide beneath us. And you can even get in some surfing on Tortuga Bay. On the final day of our Galápagos Islands family vacation, we visit the acclaimed Charles Darwin Research Station before returning to the mainland.

This iconic Galápagos hotel is situated on the waterfront surrounded by wildlife and mangroves, giving off the sensation of exclusion from the rest of the island. Originally constructed in 1995, it still boasts a unique architectural design.
