The Finch Bay Eco Hotel in Puerto Aroya

There’s scullduggery and seafaring fun on offer at the award-winning Finch Bay Eco Hotel in Puerto Aroya on Santa Cruz in the Galapagos Islands.

Adventurous, seasoned travellers between the ages of seven and 12 can join the Young Pirates Programme aboard the Galapogas expedition boat, Yacht La Pinta where on-board activities include treasure hunts, painting sessions and necklace making.

Those preferring land-based activities can remain at the hotel and enjoy inter-connecting rooms, meet sealions from kayaks, snorkel around reefs and spot marine iguanas from the comfort of a hammock.

3-night family packages from £795 per person based on a family of four, including two full day excursions, a guided visit to Charles Darwin Research Station, all meals, transfers and taxes. For details, Tel: +5932 2988200; www.finchbayhotel.com
