Galapagos Hotel Packages
Galapagos hotel packages are based centrally in a hotel on the main Santa Cruz Island with sight-seeing via a series of day tours to both Santa Cruz sites and other nearby islands. Specifically these tours are suitable for travellers who prefer a hotel to sleeping aboard a yacht, and enjoy the stability of using one base for their whole trip.
The principle difference between Galapagos hotel packages and cruises / island hopping is that you visit fewer islands in return for greater stability and comfort. That said the day tours are still very enjoyable and do show you a good variety of Galapagos wildlife, and on some of the day tours snorkeling is also possible.
Hotel package prices include twin-room accommodation, 3 meals per day at the hotel and island tour excursions with an English-speaking naturalist guide. Price exclusions are the airfare, national park entry, bar drinks and tips.
Galapagos hotel packages are usually popular with family groups or passengers susceptible to sea-sickness.
