Places to Visit:

Española Island: Named after the first city of America (its English name honors Viscount Samuel Hood). With its 60 km², it is one of the smaller islands that make up the Galapagos archipelago, and it is the oldest of all, with about 3.5 million years of existence. Although it is uninhabited, it is home to several animal species of interest, such as the endemic Spanish mockingbird, albatross, blue-footed boobies, Galápagos turtledove, bifurcated gull, marine iguana, and lava lizard. Among the visitors, Gardner Bay, which has a beach renowned for its beauty, and Punta Suarez, known for bird watching, are especially popular.

Gardner Bay: It is a approximately 1 km long beach that is among the most magnificent in all of Galápagos. It is home to many sea lion colonies, and the turquoise-colored water makes a beautiful contrast with the white sand composed of shell dust. On the rocks, large marine iguanas and Sally Lightfoot crabs can be found. Mockingbirds fight for territory and inspect the backpacks of tourists. About 50 meters from the coast, there is a rock where you can encounter tropical fish and rays while snorkeling. But even more spectacular is Gardner Rock, which can be reached by a panga. It is home to white-tipped reef sharks and other colorful sea creatures, and it is very popular among snorkelers.

Best way to visit the Galapagos This trip was excellent. The Calypso was the perfect size (16 pax). You could get to know the other guests, and transit to the islands was easy in two landing craft. The rooms were comfortable, and the food was plentiful, creative, and delicious. Best of all, our guide Eduardo was funny, knowledgeable, and really helpful when we were snorkeling. His English was perfect. I was concerned sending money to what appeared to be a casually run business, but they delivered everything promised. I’m very satisfied with this experience, and the family loved the trip.

Highly recommend, great tour company!! Great tour company to see the Galapagos - Rodrigo was responsive and helpful over Whatsapp during the booking process, and provided very detailed and clear information about what to expect. The company actually works with other tour companies as well, so you join different tours everyday with different companies and you get to meet different people each time, which is awesome. It also means that they can be flexible and amend the activities depending on what you want to see and do. You get briefed on your itinerary when you arrive, and can ask questions on Whatsapp whenever you want (although wifi signal is poor on the islands!), so we felt reasonably well informed. The tours were all well organised, the guides were friendly and knowledgeable, and the food was amazing.

Amazing. I had a great time on board of the Millenium catamaran (5 day cruise). The staff was really friendly en helpfull, the guide could tell us so much about all of the animals living there and the facilities on the Millennium were perfect (for example the possibility to rent a wetsuit en snorkeling equipment). The meals were very good as well. I would highly recommend this agency.

Unforgettable experience with perfect arrangement I booked a series of tours 6 days in a row and every tours were almost perfect and unforgettable experience.They arranged every transportations (every driver picked me up in front of my hotels, airports and port wherever I arrived or departed), accommodations, breakfast, lunch and of course my customized tours. Some of tours cannot cancel or book in a last minute due to complexities or capacities, but better to ask.If they could provide a detailed itinerary in advance online, they will be perfect.

Great cruise, reliable and honest company! Rodrigo booked our 8D/7N cruise and flights around the Galápagos Islands (north east and south) whilst we were travelling in Colombia. We had an amazing time on the cruise and are very grateful for Rodrigo’s patience as we worked out how to do the bank transfer, and find the funds for the trip! It was a really daunting experience putting trust in a company / person when you are in a different country, especially large sums of money - Rodrigo understood and was very reliable sending the confirmation email and tickets and checking us into our flights. We also accidentally transferred $70 too much and Rodrigo let us know and we came to collect it in his Quito office - very honest! Did I mention that we also had the most amazing time! Was a highlight of our South America travels! Would wholeheartedly recommend for a last minute deal!

Amazing Travel Experience to the Galapagos Rodrigo Canchig at Galapagos Natural Life organized a trip for me and my family, a group of 11 people. We had an 8 night cruise on the Beluga Yacht around Isabela Island, and a few days in mainland Ecuador before and after. Our experience was amazing, and everything was so well organized that we could just enjoy it without any worries.The boat was very comfortable, and the staff were amazing. The food was good, everything was always clean, the panga drivers were very skilled and everyone was so attentive to our needs. Our naturalist, Richard Ruiz, was great. He was very organized, knowledgeable, and responsive to everyone's needs and expectations.Rodrigo also helped us organize transport around Quito, and our driver was also great - always on time, very kind and a good driver.If you are organizing a trip to the Galapagos and Ecuador, I highly recommend contacting Rodrigo at Galapagos Natural Life.

Galapagos 7 night cruise Rodrigo Canchig at Galapagos Natural Life was excellent in helping plan all aspects of our Galapagos trip and more - He was reliable, prompt with all responses, and highly organized. Our 7 night boat tour to Galapagos onboard the Beluga required a lot of planning as we were a big family group with teens, and Rodrigo was attentive throughout. Our boat trip was perfect, and all the details we asked for were included. Rodrigo also helped us book car/drivers and flights for other parts of our trip when we requested. We were 100% happy with our experience with Galapagos Natural Life, specifically Rodrigo (reservacionesgalapagos@gmail.com). Note that he also runs Galapagoslastminute - it is the same Rodrigo!

Fantastic travel agency for Galapagos trip! After much research on this site and others, I decided to book our Galapagos Cruise with Galapagos Natural Life (online at galapagoslastminute). I wanted to support a local Ecuadorian agency and boat. They were fantastic! From my very first inquiry online to leaving Ecuador, Rodrigo was only an email or WhatsApp message away. He answered all my questions, usually within an hour any time of day. Rodrigo books and handles reservations for many local ship operators. We picked the luxury boat, Alya. Wow, was it fantastic! I will write a review about the boat and cruise under Alya. I was nervous to send so much money to an Ecuador bank and tried to do some research to make sure it wasn't a scam. When Rodrigo but a hold on a cabin for me I went to the extra effort to see that another travel site now showed 1 less cabin for my cruise, so I was hopeful this was a reliable travel agency. Galapagos Natural Life was not only a reliable agency but very well organized and informative. After all decisions were made about what we wanted to do, Rodrigo booked and sent us all our cruise tickets and air flight tickets, and all the information we needed for the Galapagos fees and transit cards. We also booked their "Quito Extension" tour and had a 2 day tour of Quito highlights with a private driver. Rodrigo booked our Quito hotel as part of this tour, and had a driver meet us at the airport, take us to the hotel and return us to the airport at the end of our trip. I usually organize all these things myself when we travel but it was a nice touch especially when I don't speak Spanish and have never been in South America. He also had a company representative meet us at the airport on the day we flew over to Galapagos, and she made sure we were all booked in with our Galapagos transit cards and fees paid. After all the back and forth WhatsApp messages with Rodrigo, I felt like I knew him, so it was nice that he took the time to stop by our Quito hotel and introduce himself and make sure their wasn't anything else we needed. If you want to book a local Galapagos cruise or land tour I highly recommend Galapagos Natural Life.

The Galapagos For my 60th birthday, my husband took me to the Galápagos Islands. Because it is a National Park, you have to be accompanied by a certified naturalist guide, so we chose the tour group Natural Habitat. It was wonderful. We did a very active tour, with hiking, snorkeling and kayaking every day from a 72 foot catamaran. There were 2 naturalists, 7 crew members and 10 tourists (total). The guides were a fount of information, helpful and fun to be around. The snorkeling was a major highlight. We swam with sea turtles, sea lions and tons of fish. The experience as amazing, and I cannot recommend it any higher
