Smart Voyager Certification

As one of Ecuador's leading conservation organizations, Conservacion y Desarrollo developed the Smart Voyager sustainable tourism certification program, which awards its seal of approval to tour boat operators and hotels in Ecuador who meet a set of strict conservation standards for protecting the environment, wildlife and the well-being of workers and local communities.

The best of all worlds at the Finch Bay.

Our award-winning Galápagos Islands Hotel, the Finch Bay Eco Hotel, lies just steps from the beach in a secluded location, across the bay from Puerto Ayora on the island of Santa Cruz in the heart of the Galapagos Islands. Our guests love the hotel’s natural surroundings, the ocean, the swimming pool and bar area, our chef’s culinary creations, the fact that we’re close to everything and yet set apart, our daily yacht excursions aboard our own superb yacht, and of course, the warm and sincere service that each and every one receives. We consider all our guests to be our friends. We’re convinced they feel the same way. We hope to make you a friend of the Finch very soon!

We have recently refreshed our packages, creating what we believe to be the ideal way to explore the wildlife wonders of the Galapagos while still having time to relax and contemplate.

The award-winning Finch Bay Eco Hotel lies just steps from the beach in a secluded location, across the bay from Puerto Ayora on the island of Santa Cruz. Guests cherish the hotel’s privacy, natural surroundings, swimming pool, fine dining and superb service.

The Finch Bay, Galapagos Hotel, offers an alternative way of experiencing the Galapagos Islands to taking an expedition cruise. Our all-inclusive packages, which can range from 3 to 7 nights, combine exploring visitor sites within the National Park, aboard the hotel’s own yacht, with days full of learning and relaxation closer to the hotel on Santa Cruz Island. We can also organise daily yacht excursions to stunning visitor sites with experienced naturalist guides and excellent service, as well as a range of activities on Santa Cruz.

The ecologically-orientated Finch Bay has 6 Ocean View Suites and 21 Garden View Rooms all with bathrooms and air conditioning. Its infrastructure and activities are entirely orientated to a concept of true ecotourism – it has won numerous awards for its conservation efforts.

Delicious, healthy international and Galápagos-inspired dishes are prepared daily by the hotel’s qualified Executive Chef, using the freshest ingredients – including many from its organic vegetable garden.

Guests experience these remarkable islands at their own pace, exploring both land and sea wonders: Enriching, relaxing, life-changing. The Galápagos, the Finch Bay way.

"We have just returned from our trip to the Galapagos islands and were completely and totally satisfied with the arrangements made through you. All phases of the trip went as planned and the agents were always waiting for us when we arrived and escorted us to hotels and airports with minimum effort and fuss. The accommodations at Finch Bay were great! The staff was courteous and knowledgeable and the food was good on the buffets. The naturalists really knew their information about the wildlife of the islands and were good at explaining everything. We were very pleased with our whole trip and can't wait for the next one.  Thank you for your help in the preparation."- Cindy and Terry Burleson, USA
