Explore the incredible heartland of Ecuador and its enchanted islands together and build new memories along the way during this 9-day Ecuador Galapagos family adventure. From coastal hacienda excursions to island safaris, vacationing in Ecuador is the perfect opportunity to reconnect and have fun.
Coastal Hacienda Stay and Excursions
From Guayaquil, you will be transported to your coastal accommodations at the family-owned Hacienda Danesa. Immersed in lush greenery at the base of the Ecuadorian Andes, your family’s stay here will be filled with both wonder and comfort.
Join in on the many fun and educational activities available each day. Together you can learn how chocolate is made, enjoy freshly prepared meals, and participate in the various activities of this working farm. Go horseback riding or lazy river tubing if you like, also.
You’ll have incredible excursions to choose from as well. Hike through the impressive cloud forests with stops along the way, or experience a close encounter with water buffalos. Immerse yourselves in the local honey beekeeping experience, or join the chef for a hands-on cooking class, including a trip to the local farmers’ market.
When it comes to Ecuador family adventures, you’ll be hard-pressed to find one more exciting and hands-on than this coastal hacienda experience.
Galapagos Islands Family Safari
The fun’s not over yet, though, because it’s time to transition to one of the best Galapagos family adventure tours we offer.
Once back in Guayaquil, you’ll hop on a short flight to Baltra Island to begin your enchanted islands adventure. From there, you’ll be transported to the Galapagos Safari Camp, located on a volcanic crater rim and encompassed within a 135-acre reserve complete with its own tropical fruit trees and cacao plants.
While here, you’ll stay in luxury upscale tents on the property or choose the family suite for your accommodations. Each tent and the family suite have their own private bathrooms with hot showers and a perfect balcony to relax on. An infinity pool, small library, and the main lodge also offer amazing spots to gather.
Opportunities abound to build family memories and reconnect in nature on a grand scale while here. You can explore volcanic craters and lava tunnels, search for the famous giant tortoises, and learn about the many exotic bird species of the islands.
More choices include walking through wetlands, biking to local beaches, snorkeling, or sea kayaking. Keep an eye out for sea lions, marine iguanas, blue-footed boobies, flamingos, and maybe even a few white tip reef sharks if you do.
You’ll also have chances to interact with the locals, such as taking an art class with a local artist, learning fishing tricks from the island fishermen, and touring the famous Charles Darwin Research Station.
There’s something for everyone here, and the memories you make together will stay with you for a lifetime.
