Galápagos Frontier is located on Santa Cruz Island in the town of Guayabillos and is the closest reserve to see Giant Tortoises. It encompasses a fascinating forest in the transition zone with a high degree of endemism in plant and bird species. In addition, we offer hiking trails, natural pools, a variety of fruit trees, and thrilling Lava Tunnels.


We are proud to provide education and tourism services to both the local community and national and international visitors. We officially opened our doors in early 2023 and are located just 15 minutes from downtown Puerto Ayora. This makes us the ideal natural reserve to witness the Galapagos Giant Tortoises roam freely and explore the mysterious lava tunnels.


At Galapagos Frontier, our guests have the opportunity to learn about zoology, herpetology, geology, and botany in the Galapagos Islands. It is a unique experience that you will not forget. In addition, we offer cooking classes with a local chef where you can prepare a delicious meal.

Our place is super accessible as you can get here by walking, by bus, by taxi, or even by bicycle. If you prefer public transportation, there is a bus available at 13:10 that will take you to the town of GUAYABILLOS where our reserve is located. Once you're here, you'll have the option to take a self-guided route or join one of our exciting tours. The tour schedules are very convenient, giving you the option to choose between 09:00 and 11:30 in the morning, as well as 14:00 and 16:30 in the afternoon. We look forward to seeing you!

Hello, I am Cesar. Pleased to meet you!
