Your Experience

Two brothers Alfredo and Marcelo Meneses founded Neotropic Expeditions in 1991, a company that pioneered much of the adventure and culture specialty travel in Galapagos, Ecuador and Colombia and today remains the undisputed leader.

You could say that adventure and innovation are in our DNA. In fact, the only things that have stayed the same over the past 26 years (aside from our unfailing sense of humor) are our love for our planet, the authentic, transformative and inspirational experiences we craft, and our passion for service.

From the moment you make the decision to join us on an adventure, you become one of us and we treat you like part of the family. That is, the loving, caring, move-mountains-for-you kind of family – we won’t make you wash the dishes. Taking your wishes as our starting point, our expert travel designers work with a team of guides and experts to curate your journey – we don’t miss a thing. Creating memories of a lifetime is our purpose.

Service Standards

We believe everyone should experience the joy of adventure, nature and cultural travel. With that in mind, we have designed three different service standards for our Neotropic itineraries, ranging from highly personalized and high-end to scheduled and affordable – each one with experiences and accommodation hand-picked by us.


Personal. Privileged. Tailored. Our Signature Journey is the secret side door into a Galapagos that only few will encounter, with top hotels, exclusive, curated activities and your own bilingual guide so that every moment is meaningful and learning is guaranteed.


You won’t sacrifice comfort for adventure with our Premium Journeys. Accompanied by an experienced tour leader on a special selection of our curated experiences, make the most of our top of the line equipment with the peace of mind that everything’s been thought through for you. Enjoy the independence to do things at your own pace, choosing from accommodation in our Opuntia Premium and Comfort hotels.


Our Essential Journeys bring together the fundamentals for a life-enriching Galapagos adventure, each element hand-picked by our experienced travel designers. You’ll share group experiences and transfers with other adventure-lovers and be free to choose where, when and what to eat, and how you spend your leisure time. All with the reassurance of our professional planning, time-honed safety expertise and the best value for money.
