Hostal Suiza is a small Inn near the center ( 8 min. away). Two dogs are part of our family and in our patio you can still find endemic plants and animals. We try to keep an environmentally friendly life style as far as possible at our "rustic" place.
We live just a few minutes out of town and have a patio and a terrace with two hammocks. In our backyard you can observe finches and lava lizards and you are going to meet our dogs Paxi and Oso and our chickens.
We keep an environmentally lifestyle and do not offer air conditioning but our rooms have big windows and you can sit outside and enjoy the breeze.
In the reception area you have access to a kettle and a coffeemaker, a fridge is available to store food or water and plenty of dishes and cutlery if you want to prepare your breakfast or a salad.
If there is something else that you need like a blender we are more than happy to provide it, just please clean and store everything again for you and others to use.
You have access to a fridge and a kettle where you can prepare a cup of coffee or tea. We have some books that you can read or swap and a water dispenser where you can get potable water.
Interaction with guests
Jose my husband is often around if you speak some spanish he can give you some tips and I am at home when I´m not working. About two weeks a month. We are more then happy to provide information about the islands, and recommend a few good places.
We are both naturalist guides my husband is retired now and I am still working.
If you are interested we have some books about natural history and GALAPAGOS in general, but please ask if you are interested!
See you soon
Other things to note
We do not change sheets and towels everyday in order to safe water which is an important resource on an island with limited fresh water. There is more information about that on a small information sheet which we ask you to read when you arrive to our place.
You are welcome to use the coffeemaker and kettle in the reception, there is a fridge and drinking water available but please after using the kitchen utensils make sure you clean and store them again. We kindly ask you to turn of the lights and the fan when you leave the room. Please respect other guests to make the stay more enjoyable for everyone.
Because in the GALAPAGOS Islands we have to comply with certain standards of an environmentally management, we ask you to help us to recycle and safe water and energy.
Thank you for your collaboration.
