Finch Bay EcoHotel

Santa Cruz Island at Punta Estrada, Santa Cruz, Cotopaxi, 200350, Ecuador

You can combine a stay here with day cruises on the hotel's Sea Lion yacht , or day tours that include snorkeling, diving, sea kayaking, hiking, mountain biking, and visiting a giant tortoise nature reserve. On kayaking trips behind the hotel you'll get a close-up look at sharks, sea turtles, rays, and a variety of birds. The stunning pool deck and hammocks throughout the property are especially great places to relax after all your activities. Most rooms have a garden view, but the ocean-view rooms are larger and offer more privacy; all are non-smoking. Rates include a buffet breakfast. The remoteness of Finch Bay makes a one-night stay possible only before or after a multi-day cruise; packages for three nights or more are a better value.


  • Many activities, tours, remoteness makes the place feel exclusive


  • Long walk or short water taxi from town
  • expensive, although good value for what is offered
