Our private lodge is ideal for families with older children and small groups.
The two-bedroom lodge sleeps up to five and offers a dining room, kitchen and a swimming pool. With the choice of private meal service or the chance to dine with other Galapagos Magic guests in the main lodge or D’Cave restaurant, this is the most flexible of our accommodation choices. Guests can enjoy the total exclusivity of the home or enjoy mingling with other guests in our shared facilities.
The intimate property offers a variety of lodging styles to suit every traveler. Our accommodations have been designed to connect guests with the nature surrounding them. Our warm and talented staff treat every guest like family, making a stay a true home away from home experience.
A delicious buffet breakfast is served in the main restaurant and dinner is prepared by professional chefs. A variety of meal preferences and special requests are easily accommodated by the kitchen with advance.
Our meadow deck is another special spot in the Galapagos Magic wildlife sanctuary. You can perform your sun salutations overlooking the sea, gather for a caipirinha drink and an interpretive wildlife discussion, or gaze at the incredible night skies from this breathtaking vantage point.
D’Cave restaurant is the most unique to be found in the Galapagos Islands. Tucked into the sanctuary’s lava caves, candlelit dinners are perfect for everything from romantic travelers to group celebrations. Between the excellent cuisine and the amazing setting, your meal will be unforgettable!
We offer a variety of hiking and kayaking combination explorations around Santa Cruz Island, some with optional snorkeling. Let us know how active you want to be and we’ll select the right trip for you!
Explore the Itabaca Channel
Snorkel, kayak and SUP in the crystal-clear, wildlife-rich waters of the Itabaca Channel, which flows between Santa Cruise and Baltra Islands.
Discover Puerto Ayora
We love the peace of the highlands, but there’s lots to explore in Puerto Ayora. You can visit an organic coffee farm and sugar mill, get to know local artisans, visit the world-famous Charles Darwin Research Station and more!
Yachts Tour of Uninhabited Islands
Enjoy a full day excursion to a nearby uninhabited island to view wildlife and explore. The island visited varies by day and according to National Park regulations.
Island Exploration with a Local
Get out on the water with an ex-fisherman galapagueno to learn their story, explore the biodiversity of nearby Santa Fe Island and take a dip in the water for swimming and snorkeling. There is even a chance to see one of the most important sea lion colonies in the Islands.
If you love paddling, we can arrange for easy to moderately difficult kayaking excursions in a variety of interesting and beautiful locales. You’ll have the chance to see a variety of the Islands’ flora and fauna as you paddle.
If exploring on foot is your style, we have many hiking excursions on Santa Cruz that will let you stretch your legs (or even work up a sweat) and explore the Galapagos’ unique geology, as well as its wildlife.
There’s a reason the Islands are so famous for their wildlife, and while it’s easy to see a lot of species while snorkeling, Scuba diving takes it to a whole new level. Ask us about Scuba diving tours.
If you prefer more independent travel, we have a menu of activities for you too! From visits to remote beaches to self-guided hikes, we can recommend an exciting array of ways to explore the Islands.
