Just Back From: Galapagos


The Repasy family of  4 reached out to MOJO recently in search of a memorable family adventure during the 2023 holidays. After an initial conversation with MOJO the family decided on the Galapagos Islands. Priorities included getting the most out of every day to maximize their stay in this bucket-list destination. 

“I am typically the planner for our family, and it was such a gift not having to spend countless hours pouring over websites and guidebooks,” says Alice “What a gift it was to truly just show up and know everything was taken care of — I don’t think I’ll ever be able to go back to planning  adventures myself!” 

Every MOJO adventure begins with conversation to uncover the goals of the trip, likes and dislikes of each traveler, and the cadence of how they wish to spend their time. On this Galapagos adventure, many unique excursions and insider experiences were offered, most of which are not available to the general public in a typical online search, allowing our guests to enjoy the natural beauty of the islands without lifting a finger. 

Along with access to unique accommodations and the flexibility to customize elements of their itinerary, MOJO arranged for an exclusive private guide who accompanied them throughout this beautiful part of the world. This allowed the family to get the inside scoop on the best spots to enjoy nature and its history. 

“Our personal guide, Gabriel, made our trip! We felt like royalty, getting attention and access to all the best spots only a local would know about,” says Alice.

A few of the Repasy’s customized adventures included: 

  • Snorkeling at Kicker Rock where you can spot colorful fish and sharks. 
  • Hiking the Sierra Negra Volcano, exploring the circumference of the lava-filled crater while taking in breathtaking views.
  • Kayaking the Tintoreras Islet where they spotted Galapagos penguins, marine turtles and sea lions.

“This trip felt truly off the beaten path. We felt like insiders, and were able to steer clear of tourist traps,” says Alice “From beginning to end, MOJO made the entire process smooth and seamless.”

“Whether you’re looking for a family holiday getaway, a couple’s trip or enjoy flying solo, we pride ourselves in creating memorable moments and working with trusted partners around the world to curate unique experiences,” says Molly Mathis, founder of MOJO Adventures.
