Our Incredible Location

The Finch Bay Galapagos Hotel is conveniently located in the heart of the Galapagos. It occupies a prime spot next to the only public beach in the town of Puerto Ayora, over on the south side of Santa Cruz Island (see map below). The hotel is reached by taking a plane from either Quito or Guayaquil on mainland Ecuador to the airport on Baltra Island. From there, guests travel across the channel to Santa Cruz Island, and then, by land to the Puerto Ayora docks. It takes about 45-minutes to get to the Finch Bay Galapagos Hotel from the Galapagos Airport (GPS).

The island of Santa Cruz is part of the Galapagos archipelago’s central islands, which means that most of the National Park’s most important visitor sites (Bartolome, North Seymour, etc.) can be easily reached as part of our Day Tours aboard our very own Sea Lion Yacht. The hotel is both close and yet separate from the town, too, meaning guests can enjoy peace and tranquility while still having the urban center nearby.
