When staying in the Galapagos it is good to remember how remote these islands are. Everything from food to building materials has to be shipped in (not counting all the fresh caught seafood!) so the islands can be a bit more expensive and sometimes not as modern as what people are used to. That said, the Galapagos have infinite amounts unique charm and many of these hotels are run by Galapagueños families that have been on the islands for years and make up the human history and culture of the area. The hotels also pride themselves on sustainability and being environmentally conscious. So, while you are there enjoy the hospitality, the wildlife, the great food and don’t worry to much when the internet flickers on and off occasionally!

Lava Lodge is the one and only lodge located on Floreana. While accommodations are simple, their location feet from the ocean and remoteness make for an exclusive retreat perfectly located for exploring Floreana’s highlights. This lodge is family owned and run by the Cruz family, one of the oldest settler families on the island. The lodge and cabins are located on one of the most secluded bays the islands have to offer with abundant wildlife both on land and sea. Stand Up Paddle boards are available to explore the bay on your free time and a loberia (sea lion breeding ground) is a mere 5 minute walk from the lodge. Floreana also has one of the most interesting human histories of the Galapagos and we recommend getting the intriguing history of the early settlers including the Wittmers, the Baroness and Doctor Ritter and his partner Dore.
