Everything about the Red Mangrove Eco Luxury Hotel is striking: the location, the architecture, the attention to detail. With rooms that look directly out onto either the sea or the surrounding mangrove forest, and a sweeping view of Puerto Ayora’s bay, the lodge is perfectly situated to give you an unforgettable experience of Santa Cruz, the Galapagos’ largest inhabited island.
Completely remodeled in 2018, the hotel is certified for sustainable eco-tourism. Here you can sit for hours watching the mangrove’s ecosystem in action, or take a meditative stroll along the beach. Best of all, the hotel’s open construction allows sea lions, pelicans, marine iguanas, and other local animals to visit the deck area, giving new meaning to the term “eco-friendly.” An updated version of a classic lodging in a little strip of paradise.
