Finch Bay Eco-Hotel

The Finch Bay Hotel - named after the famous Darwin's Finches abundant in the surroundings - is just a few feet from the beach on a private seaside location surrounded by mangroves. Here guests can cherish the privacy, natural surroundings and superb service offered by the staff of the hotel.

The Finch Bay provides a land based day tours to some of the islands which is an alternative for enjoying the marvels of the Galapagos Islands. The Hotel staff will work with each guest individually to determine the best activities and daily boat excursions allowing you to make the most of your Galapagos vacation. This is also a perfect way to end your Galapagos Explorer II cruise adventure, just staying in the island and relaxing or exploring Santa Cruz island via kayaking, mountain biking or just hiking to the beautiful sites of the island where you can find more wildlife.

About the hotel

Located on Santa Cruz Island at Punta Estrada, across the bay from the town of Puerto Ayora, it is situated in a quiet location, with only pedestrian and bicycle circulation - there are no cars in the neighborhood.

Finch Bay accommodates 42 guests with 21 rooms (with twin or king-size beds), each with private facilities, air conditioning and unlimited water supply, as the hotel has its own desalinization plant. This ecologically oriented hotel also boasts innovative garbage processing and recycling programs. The entire infrastructure as well as the activities are totally oriented to a concept of true ecotourism in a pristine natural environment.

Delicious healthy international and Galapagos inspired menus are prepared daily by our chef, using the freshest ingredients.

Finch Bay is easily accessible. After a two-hour flight from Ecuador's mainland, guests arrive to the airport of Baltra in the Galapagos and then take overland transportation to Puerto Ayora and the Finch Bay.
