Red Mangrove Galapagos and Ecuador Lodges announced the Dec. 1 openings of the nine-room Santa Cruz Divers Lodge in Puerto Ayora on Santa Cruz Island and the five-room Isabela Divers Lodge in Puerto Villamil on Isabela Island in the Galapagos.

Currently there are five, island-based Red Mangrove Galapagos and Ecuador Lodges accommodations with a total of 46 rooms and another, Red Mangrove Samai Lodge on mainland Ecuador featuring 11 guest rooms.

In addition, plans are in place for a new dive academy now under construction with anticipated completion in the spring of 2011.

The Red Mangrove Santa Cruz Divers Lodge with hot tub, a library/lounge and on-premise dining is a short walk from the water and adjacent to the Red Mangrove Dive Academy set to open up in the spring. The Dive Academy will be a full-service diver education center, the largest in Ecuador, with a 20-foot-deep training pool, classrooms and state of the art diving

Red Mangrove’s Isabela Divers Lodge is located within steps of the sea. Built in 2005 with a linear design, large windows invite natural light into every room. There are views of Isabela Island from the white sand beach bordered by swaying palm trees. Three meals a day are served in the "Coco Restaurant" located adjacent to the lodge. All rooms have a private bathroom, hot water, hair dryer, safety box, air conditioning, cable television, wireless internet and laundry service.
