I have almost ten years of travel experience with Lost World Adventures in Latin America. Exciting and interesting itineraries as well as great partners and properties throughout Latin America have made every trip, a wonderful trip.

The trip to Ecuador and the Galapagos was spectacular. The trip to the Galapagos went extremely well. The service in Quito and aboard the Eclipse was exceptional. The care and service on the boat were exemplary. Lost World Adventures was very attentive and professional in all communications. Your attention and consideration are appreciated.

Thank you Lost World Adventures for being so patient and putting so much time and effort into creating a trip for us...You have gone above and beyond to accommodate us and hopefully we will do this trip (or another one) in the future. I am so glad that we connected and we will hopefully be in touch in the future!


We just got back from the most amazing family vacation in Ecuador. 14 of us, including 2 children and 2 teens, went to Quito and the Galapagos Islands. The trip went off without a hitch, and everything was so well planned. The Galapagos ship was beautiful, and all the staff was incredibly helpful and friendly. Our room and huge windows looking out to the beautiful islands. The rooms also had a lot of storage for all of our stuff. We had a wonderful time and Lost World Adventures put together and fantastic trip!
