Swimming with magnificent Sea Turtles, curious Sea Lions, swift Penguins, sleek Cormorants, colourful Boobies and multitudes of fish all in the same snorkelling session - it doesn't get better than that!
Having a continental breakfast on the deck of the Life Centre at Mashpi - watching the beautiful sunrise over the cloudforest, listening to Howler Monkeys and observing the exotic birds and butterflies
The holiday exceeded my expectations
The holiday was fabulous thanks to the expertise of Tribes. The booking process was easy and all queries were dealt with promptly.
All the guides were kind, knowledgeable and interesting. They made us feel very welcome and the holiday memorable
Social & Environmental Responsibility:
All of the hotels/cruise boat had impressive sustainability policies in terms of both the social and environmental impacts.
The places you stayed
A very classy hotel. Excellent location within Quito. Helpful staff, delicious food and the rooms were very comfortable.
A very comfortable way to cruise the islands! The rooms were spacious, comfortable and "refreshed" several times a day. The food was delicious at all mealtimes and lunch on deck was a real treat. The bar team were very attentive, ensuring that we had drinks and nibbles on return from our trips. We didn't want for anything whilst on the boat.
The lodge was beautifully designed and furnished. The food was top class. The staff attentive and the rooms were clean, modern and very comfortable. The hotel provided water bottles and insect repellent for customers to use and keep and there were also robes and slippers for use in the hotel. The views from the room were spectacular and the fruit plate and constantly replenished juice were a welcome touch in the room.
