Exclusive accommodations on mainland Ecuador showcase sustainable tourism and embrace a diverse and unique wildlife.
Red Mangrove Galapagos Lodges recently became Red Mangrove Galapagos and Ecuador Lodges to better reflect growing program development on the mainland.
This year the company added its fourth lodge, Red Mangrove Samai Lodge on the Pacific Coast mainland. It has three other lodges sprinkled among the Galapagos Islands of Santa Cruz, Floreana and Isabela.
“We want to encourage our Galapagos visitors to also experience the magic of mainland Ecuador while they’re so close,” said Hernan Rodas, the lodging company’s visionary owner and founder.
He said that interest in mainland Ecuador “has increased dramatically, so we now offer mainland Ecuador packages and trip extensions in a more formal way; on our website.” He said that at present fully half of his clients book mainland tours or extensions to their Galapagos experiences.
Rodas said that plans call for adding two more lodges in the near future, one in the Amazon region and the other in the northern highlands of Ecuador.
“Our commitment is to offer the possibility of discovering the many faces of Ecuador in an exciting and memorable way. It’s our homeland and we know how to share and showcase the richness, variety and flavor with guests from all over the world. We can offer the traveler a choice of two hemispheres and four different worlds as we awaken your senses, your heart and your soul to all that is Ecuador,” said Rodas.
Rodas underscores the diversity of Ecuador that includes the Highlands with the Andes mountains, native Indian markets and volcanoes, the Coast with its miles of pristine palm and jungle-fringed beaches, the Amazon Region with an incredible diversity of flora and fauna and Darwin’s magical archipelago, the Galapagos Islands.
