Stylish central lodge and nine safari tents of Galapagos Safari Camp are located in a transition zone between cultivated land and the national park, offering an inspiring panorama of the northern and western Galápagos Islands. A glass-walled main lodge facing the Pacific includes a large log fire, teak dining table, cozy bar and lounge area with bookshelves. Recently refurbished and expanded hillside tents built on wooden platforms are comfortable (but not luxurious) and come with furnished balconies with ocean views and adjacent baths with striking lava stone sinks and effective showers; one three-bedroom family suite available. The dining room at Galapagos Safari Camp serves excellent Ecuadorian and international dishes. Small infinity pool; hiking, kayaking and diving excursions available.

Guest Post: Clayton Aynesworth on the Galapagos Islands

Although I would recommend a longer tour, say seven days by chartered boat, a four-day trip to the Galapagos can prove very satisfying if you have a well-prepared list of must-see sights.
