I booked my land based Galapagos trip through Juan Fernando Arizaga of Travelzoo and it was beyond fantastic! Juan added extra days in the Galapagos and an extra day in Quito at the end and turned a short 5 day adventure into a longer more leisurely trip. We were able to see more of Santa Cruz Island on our own,...

We did the 5 day Darwin short triangle through the Red Mangrove lodges. It was a fantastic trip. I have only praise for the program. We stayed in Red Mangrove lodges on Santa Cruz, Floreanna and Isabella. The lodges are all excellent, our tour guide was extremely knowledgeable and we saw incredible sights. They arrange everything, move your luggage to...

Our family just returned from our trip here (we stayed at both the Aventura Lodge and their lodge on Isabela Island). My husband and I and our daughters had an amazing time experiencing the wonders of the Galapagos. Truthfully, I didn't know what to expect since my husband planned the trip (and ended up packing the wrong kind of clothes)....

My wife and I arrived in the Galapagos islands and stayed our first night in an inexpensive guest house. We had planned on scheduling tours on our own. However, we quickly realized this would result in most of our time spent traveling by boat and would still be rather expensive. We discussed hiring a cruise or doing one of the...

Great service, accomadations, food was awesome and staff goes above and beyond to make your stay enjoyable. I would definetly recommend both Divers lodge and Aventura lodge for lodging and eating. The 3 island trip and diving services are amazing! We all had a blast! Transportation (shuttles/boats) are all handled for you as well as taking care of your bags...

We stayed here three nights during a 7 days land based Galapagos tour. The location was lovely, but the deck was undergoing major reconstruction so we could not sit out and appreciate the views. Our room was not ready, so they gave us another room for the first night and then had to move to another room for the next...

This "resort" has a lot of potential and is definitely above average for what else is offered in the Galapagos, but is far from 5 star luxury. The staff are incredibly friendly and accommodating. The blame for the overall shortcomings, in my mind, come from upper management who clearly have not passed along an organized structure with which to run...

We just returned from a South America holiday and would recommend going to Galapagos and booking the all inclusive tour with Red Mangrove. Our tour included Santa Cruz, Floreana and Isabella. We stayed at the Divers Lodge out first night and absolutely loved this unique place.. The service from all of the staff at Red Mangrove was fantastic. I would...

I came to the Galapagos as a nervous, single, female traveler. The care the Mangrove staff provided set me quickly at ease: the hotel provided attentive, knowledgeable, caring staff to shepherd me (and my fellow travelers) through every stage of the trip. I was greeted at the airport by someone holding a sign with my name, and a fresh, cool...

We tooked the all-inclusive tour with Red Mangrove called Darwin's Short Triangle - 3 islands. As the name implies we visited 3 islands: Santa Cruz, Floreana and Isabela and stayed at their 3 lodges in those islands. I must say we were completely impressed with this company. Not only were their accommodations outstanding, their organization and level of service was...
