Boulder, CO, October 30, 2010 --(PR.com
)-- A leading hospitality company in the Galapagos announces that it has changed its name to reflect a growing commitment to providing exclusive accommodations on mainland Ecuador.
As of Oct. 12, 2010, Red Mangrove Galapagos Lodges became Red Mangrove Galapagos and Ecuador Lodges http://www.redmangrove.com/ 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.
About Red Mangrove Galapagos and Ecuador Lodges
Red Mangrove Galapagos and Ecuador Lodges in 2007 introduced a land-based alternative to exploring the Galapagos that heretofore was a cruise-only destination. With upscale waterfront lodges strategically situated on Santa Cruz, Isabela and Floreana, it is the only company offering high quality, branded accommodations and services on multiple islands in the Galapagos and mainland Ecuador. Because it is land-based, Red Mangrove can offer a more extensive roster of activities and more flexibility than traditional cruise options.
The customary way to experience Red Mangrove’s hospitality is to spend a number of nights on each island accessed by small boat and/or aircraft. With 14 guest rooms, Aventura Lodge on Santa Cruz is distinguished by its unique architectural design which blends its mangrove forest and seafront environments tastefully and responsibly. Its location boasts generous views of Puerto Ayora Bay. Separated from the ocean by a white sand, palm-lined beach, Isabela Lodge offers eight rooms outside the sleepy fisherman’s village of Puerto Villamil on one of the most volcanically active islands on Earth. Red Mangrove Floreana Lodge is a romantic gathering of 10 private pine cottages just a five minute walk from the village of Puerto Velasco Ibarra (population 150). On the mainland coast of Ecuador Samai Lodge is an inn-and-spa suited for recollection, relaxation and wellness surrounded by the sounds of the jungle and caressed by ocean breezes.
