If you ever reach the Galápagos Islands, you’ll forever dream about them. If you ever visit San Cristóbal, you’ll surely fall in love. And if you ever have the chance to stay at Casa Opuntia’s Galapagos hotel, you’ll never want to leave.
With the crystal blue ocean a stone’s throw away, native Galápagos trees, plants and cacti forming a green backdrop, and the cool breeze that wafts through the hotel, Casa Opuntia ranks among the best Comfort Class options on this island, the closest to the continent. With Darwin’s finches as your breakfast companions, flowering giant Opuntia cacti in the garden and the placid sound of the sea, a unique experience on San Cristóbal begins right here.
Casa Opuntia makes the perfect base for exploring the wonders the island has to offer. It’s close to everything and the hotel can arrange activities to suit every budget and every taste. Spellbinding León Dormido stands out as a nearby attraction, a natural rock formation full of underwater life, perfect for your first taste of the archipelago’s beautiful marine world and wildlife. You can also combine this outing with some kayaking, a wonderfully-peaceful way to explore. At the end of the day, a delicious seafood dinner prepared by a local Galápagos family can be arranged.
The paradisiacal setting of Casa Opuntia, just a few meters from Puerto Baquerizo Moreno’s Playa de Oro beach, is complemented by the hotel’s warm and friendly service, where nothing is too much to ask the staff. All the team members, who all hail from the islands, are committed to minimizing the hotel’s impact on the pristine ecosystem of the Galápagos. That’s why Casa Opuntia does not use plastic bottles and, as a member of the Green Alliance, utilizes locally-sourced products as much as possible.
The hotel is ideal for families, couples and groups of friends, with wonderful gardens overlooking the bay and two swimming pools: a memorable retreat for your adventures in the Enchanted Islands and the wonderful island of San Cristóbal.
