Ecuador & Galapagos

“The Pantheon”

Explore the land that stirred Darwin and turned science on its ear. A pantheon of the animal kingdom’s strangest and most wonderful creatures awaits just off the coast of Ecuador. And when you’re not separating the boobies from the cormorants in the world’s greatest cage-less zoo, snorkel off-shore and toast the horizon as you cross the Equator on a luxury yacht. The evolution will not be televised; this is the real thing.

HOTEL TYPE
X

Signature

We use premium hotels that are unique expressions of the region. Often they’ve had a previous life as a monastery or a castle, but in every case they offer an exceptionally comfortable stay.

Bistro

These are stylish 4-star properties that offer a casual and comfortable stay. Often without a 24-hour concierge or room service, they tend to be smaller family-run hotels that are perfect for the region.

We had high expectations for this Galapagos trip and were blown away with how 'other worldly' and incredible it was. Cannot wait for our next B&R trip!
