Founder and owner

Hernans love of the Galapagos began as a teenager. While many kids run off to the big city, Hernan ran away from Cuenca (in Ecuador’s Andean Mountains) to the Galapagos for a 4 month break from responsibility. He has traveled many countries including: China, Hong Kong, India, Canada, the US, most of Central and South America and the Caribbean islands and European countries.

Hernan has done business for many years in the United States and speaks English fluently. After building and selling an agricultural supplies company, Hernan switched focus to his original love: the Galapagos Islands.

His vision was to offer the opportunity to discover the Galapagos in a deeper way. His priorities are a combination of great respect for green practices and a strong dedication to reach social goals. He is the owner and manager of Flipper’s Hotel Galapagos and Galapagos Hotels touring company. He was managing several hotels and resorts at different islands of the Galapagos and the coast of mainland Ecuador in the past before opening Flipper’s Hotel, a small gem in Puerto Ayora at Isla Santa Cruz.

Scuba diving, water sports, jogging and traveling with his family are some of the things Hernan enjoys to do. He lives in Cuenca, Ecuador.
