The room was small...but clean and had all the amenities that were needed. The hotel staff was always friendly...even when passing them on the trail when they were coming and going to/from work.

Our family enjoyed a fantastic vacation at Finch Bay. Now that we've been to the Galapagos, we discovered that our full week at Finch Bay was longer than what most tourists do. That said, we loved it, and found the Finch Bay touring itinerary to be extremely well done. We opted for Finch Bay's Beta Itinerary which took us to...

Wonderful excursions, beautiful location, helpful staff, and delicious food. Each island that we went to was different and interesting. The snorkeling was out of this world. Wish I could have been there a year, not four days.
