Galapagos has always been known for its biodiversity, since the archipelago hosts myriad of endemic species both in plants and animals, from sea lions to penguins, air, land and sea creatures. This earned it its name of Enchanted Islands as far back as the 16th century. Perhaps the secret behind this amazing fertility is based on its volcanic activity, since the archipelago is the second most active in the world after Hawaii.
In the last couple decades, thanks to the emerging technologies such as the Internet and improving air travel, tourism has been on the rise worldwide, especially to such mesmerizing destinations as Galapagos. Specifically in San Cristobal, the number of tourists we receive every month has risen to tens of thousands, yet, thanks to local measures, tourism is controlled so as to not impact negatively the natural treasures of the archipelago. This allows visitors to enjoy them today and to keep doing so in the future.

...And more. Just come stay with us and see for yourself.
TAKE A LASTING MEMORY WITH YOU
Hotel Miconia has been around since 2002, pioneering our concept of accommodation that makes us different.
From the start, our top priority has been not only to satisfy our clients, but, knowing that most of them have traveled a long distance to get to Galapagos, we strive to make the experience as bright and memorable as possible, by welcoming our visitors to our hotels, which are conveniently located next to the pier, where it's easy to set sail on boats, as well as the main road in Puerto Baquerizo Moreno, where you can find various services from banks to drug stores.
Miconia is the only hotel in San Cristobal with all the following features:
Swimming pool & Jacuzzi
Open air swimming pool with long chairs alongside to lay down and relax; jacuzzi with warm water and hydromassage, next to a table with parasol, where you can have food & drinks.
Our fully-equipped gym, with weights of all kinds, machines, static bikes, elliptical machines, punching bag, mats and more.
Restaurant & Mini-bar
Our restaurant is locally famous as we prepare food with many local and fresh ingredients, such as lobster and ceviches. At our Mini-bar you will find juices or smoothies made with 100% natural fruits and veggies, as well as snacks such as sandwiches, arepas, cake and wraps to perfectly combine your drink.
