Our Company


When traveling with SunWind Travel you will experiment a different way of doing Cultural tourism, as our activities are linked to our history, and close sharing with the people on each place, instead of limiting one to observe from a distance.

SunWind Travel offers the best in Adventure tourism, taking special attention in your safety and comfort. We'd rather organize smaller groups (4 - 16 people) and assign more guides per group, depending on the activity.

Our specialty and greater field of expertise are the cruises in the Galapagos Islands, both naturalist cruises (visits and walks to the interior of the Islands), as diving cruises, including the world famous Wolf and Darwin Islands.

We are known for our top value tailor made travel organization, for which we have selected the best operated boats in the archipelago, guides with much experience and reputation, accommodation, transport and other services that complement a trip of the best quality.We also have an excellent selection of lodges in the Amazon,
