I recently visited the Galapagos Islands (Santa Cruz and Isabella) by way of a tour found on Travel Zoo. I have wanted to visit the Islands for many years, and the travel zoo price was excellent. The best part of this trip was the excellent and personal service we had from Jimmy Patino. He greeted us at the airport, made... More

The resort personal at Adventura and Isabella lodges were all very friendly and helpful, especially our welcome greeter Adid and guides Jimmy and Nico. They go out of their way to accommodate guests. It is definitely a good idea to pay extra for the transport from the airport to the lodge and for the update to stay in the main... More

We had the pleasure of staying at two of the Red Mangrove properties during our Galapagos tour. We were thrilled with the suite that they upgraded us to when we arrived! We had the most glorious view and the suite was very spacious. When we arrived, we were greeted by smiles and a hearty lunch with some curious animal friends... More

The red mangrove has been just lovely- the staff are welcoming and helpful. Our room was fantastic (azul)- a beautiful balcony and sea view. And having sea lions, crabs, pelicans and iguanas mooching around the hotel is just brilliant!
