Villa Galapagos

(804) 288-2823

Agency: Exsus Travel
This company has dozens of villas and private houses across Argentina, Belize, Brazil, and Peru, many of which adhere to an eco-friendly philosophy. A number of property owners rely on solar power, recycled water, and locally sourced organic food, and the agency also contributes to charities in local communities.

Description
A three-bedroom estate on Santa Cruz Island's Pelican Bay, this villa boasts a steam room and sauna, sundeck, heated infinity swimming pool, and a collection of videos and books about the Galapagos; the villa also comes with a dedicated naturalist guide who can design custom itineraries, providing travel on the villa’s private speedboat. A short walk from the villa is the Charles Darwin Research Centre in Puerto Ayora, dedicated to the conservation of the Galapagos ecosystem.
