Semilla Verde Boutique Hotel
Semilla Verde Boutique Hotel is an original and idyllic retreat where space, privacy and Galapagos wildlife abounds.
Enjoy one-to-one personal service, panoramic views from private terraces and exclusive access to nature trails through twelve acres of private forest where giant tortoises lumber freely and native birds thrive; at night, gaze up into the unspoilt majesty of the milky way.
By far the best way to experience a new place is to ask the locals for advice.We are the locals and/or naturalist guides, and all have decades of experience in life and tourism in the Galápagos islands.
You can contact us to book your stay, join or organize a yoga retreat or book a package with tours and accommodation.
- Arriving yourself via bus-ferry-bus or taxi
You will need to wait up to 30 minutes whilst the bags are offloaded, then take a 15 minute free bus ride from the airport to ‘Itabaca Canal’ that crosses to Santa Cruz via ferry that takes 10 minutes and will cost $1 per person. Once on the other side of the canal, take a taxi or bus and tell the driver the following: “POR FAVOR, LLEVARME AL HOTEL ‘SEMILLA VERDE’.
There is a small signpost outside the property on the main road. Take a right turn down the track and the entrance is 200 metres down on the right hand side. The taxi will cost you $25 and drop you directly at the hotel.
The bus will cost $3 per person but will leave you on the main road.
- Private shuttle
If you have a private transfer to Semilla Verde, our driver will be waiting for you on the other side of customs to bring you back to Semilla Verde. You will need to wait up to 30 minutes whilst the bags are offloaded, then, with the driver, take a 15 minute bus ride from the airport to ‘Itabaca Canal’ that crosses to Santa Cruz via ferry, 10 minutes. Then, a car ride to take you the 30km to the Semilla Verde, another 35 mins.
