A new step in the evolution of luxury eco-adventure in the Galapagos Islands.
The Pikaia Lodge concept is designed for the environmentally conscious, physically active and adventurous traveler, who seeks close contact with the unique natural wonders of the Galapagos, with the highest level of comfort and services that can be provided within the limitations of such a remote, restricted and eco-sensitive location.

Angel Villa defines what a man in his best form can be: taking care of his family first and adapting to changes in environment and circumstance. He has had more than his fair share of challenges, but he does not see them that way. He sees opportunity. He had a farm that wasn’t making enough money and turned it into a dairy farm. Instead of selling the milk, he made cheese and yogurt and oversaw the distribution of these products throughout the Galápagos. He was the first agriculturalist to give visitors a tour of his farm, creating the co-op between other farmers to market their coffee. He is lucky enough to be backed by his wife, sons and daughter. Angel Villa–come here and meet him.

Green Coco Charters
Zavala Fisherman Family
To go fishing legally in the best and most beautiful waters in the Galápagos Marine Reserve requires authorization and licensure of both boats and its operators from the Galápagos National Park, otherwise known as Vivencial Fishing. Franklin Zavala is the son of a son of a fisherman in the Galápagos. His father has gone blind. His son has gone to college and invented a manner of marketing their livelihood by exporting Galápagos fish harvests to upscale markets. Franklin can be a little cranky, but his wife and sons are a little more even-keeled. Come here and meet them–not Franklin so much, unless you have a big tuna on the line, in which case there’s no finer man to be in a boat with. An afternoon with the Zavala’s is not only an exciting, exhilarating day of fishing followed by dinner with the family, but also a lively glimpse into the fisheries’ past, present and future. Pictured is Franklin’s son and the boat’s captain, Martin.
