GETTING TO THE HOTEL INDEPENDENTLY
We always encourage our guests to consider one of our transfer services, which will take care of all of the logistics of arrival and departure. A staff member will meet you at the airport and escort you to the hotel.
However, if you would like to book just the hotel, please follow these instructions:
To reach the Galapagos Islands, take a flight from the mainland of Ecuador (Quito or Guayaquil airports) to Baltra airport (GPS); there are at least 2 daily flights from either city. Make sure you book your flight to Baltra Island (GPS). Upon arrival to Baltra Island (airport) take a short ride by bus to the Itabaca Canal (make sure you take the bus to the canal, NOT to the pier) then cross the Itabaca Channel by ferry to Santa Cruz Island. Once on the other side of the canal, take a bus or a taxi to the town of Puerto Ayora (through the highlands of Santa Cruz, a distance of 42 km (26 miles). Upon arrival to Puerto Ayora, walk to the public dock and take a water taxi to the dock of the Finch Bay Galapagos Hotel. From here, walk along the path to the hotel (5 minutes).
