In MI CALETA INN you will feel at home
Rodrigo and Esther, the owners, are always there in case you need anything they can help you with.
Mi Caleta Inn started as a family home, which they built with local help and moved in in 1994. At the time there were seven children so the house was built accordingly. Even though four of the children lived in Quito, they always spent their summer break with their father in Galapagos. As time goes by, sometimes too quickly, the kids grew up, left the nest, so they were left with a large house for just the two of them.
Here’s when the idea to share the house with interesting people started.
Rod, is a now retired naturalist guide with 24 years of continuous guiding in Galapagos and has a large knowledge of most of the Galapagos nature. He is also Co-owner of SunWind Travel.
Esther, is a Galapagueña of birth so her knowledge of the islands and its people is quite large and especially after having worked for the former Galapagos National Institute for nearly 28 years.
Combined, their knowledge of just about anything concerning this incredible archipelago is almost encyclopedic.
In Ecuador, and especially in the Coastal areas and the Galapagos the word CALETA is used as slang for HOME, or house, while the real meaning is small cove, And whenever one is going home “ME VOY A MI CALETA” is the usual way to say it, so, they thought it was a very proper name for this family inn.
The inn is divided into two bodies, one is the main house with three bedrooms three bathrooms, living, dining, large kitchen fully equipped.
Also, there are three suites, one for two singles with the possibility of adding a couple of inflatable mattresses in case four friends want to share one large bedroom or if there is a large family. It comes with kitchenette, refrigerator, coffee maker, blender, TV DVD Player, WiFi, A/C, etc. The other suite has two smaller bedrooms, one for a couple and the other with twin beds, same equipment as the other, TV, DVD Player and WiFi, A/C on each room, etc. And a third, just for a couple but with all the services except a range.
