A great value option for exploring the archipelago in a lovely small ship with excellent service and comfort

The Monserrat is a 28m motor yacht with a speed of 12 knots. The vessel has a capacity for 20 passengers in ten air-conditioned cabins - 6 on the upper deck and 4 on the lower deck all with en-suite bathrooms. Interiors are modern yet simple and bright. There are 11 crew members including two naturalist guides, one of the best ratios in the archipelago.

Facilities include a dining area, lounge/bar with TV for presentations and relaxation plus two sundecks and an outdoor shaded area where you can enjoy alfresco dinning or simply to relax and admire the views as you sail around the islands.

What our clients say

  • Quito is a fabulous city with residents that seem to be pleased to see you, really helpful if you make just a little effort to address them in Spanish. Ecuador is a wonderful country with much to see and do so often overlooked by those seeking to visit South America and that I now know is a big mistake.

    DW, Lingfield
  • We had a wonderful time… we thought the guides we had were among the best we have known anywhere; we went for the Galápagos and would admit to mainland Ecuador being a bit of an “add on”, but we thought it was fabulous and would return - Quito was so much better than we expected.

    PW, Lambeth
  • Waking up at Hacienda Porvenir and being able to see the sun rising near Cotopaxi. Being in the Galapagos once again and seeing all the wildlife - such a unique experience.

    JB, Edinburgh
  • We had a wonderful holiday to Quito and Galapagos with Journey Latin America. We just wish it had been longer!

    HS, W4
  • Highlights:- “Quito celebrating their anniversary of independence. All the Haciendas we visited were full of history and interesting in different ways .Las Cajas and getting up into the high Andes was great”

    GW, Truro
  • Most memorable experience: "Where to start? Huge evening skies on the Napo river, pulling out of Chimbacalle station on the Tren Crucero in a cacophony of whistling and hooting; the Devil's nose, swimming with penguins, sharks and sea lions. The moment on the Tren Crucero when our guide wanted to reassure us, You may have heard that Cotopaxi has been erupting recently, don't worry, it's all under control. The library in the Hacienda Zuleta; Firefly larvae in the dark on Limoncocha; smoking a cigar in the garden of Hacienda La Cienega - its's hard to keep a cigar alight in the thin Andean air, but you can pretend to be Alaxander von Humbolt."
