Casa del Lago Lodging House

High quality accommodation services.

La Casa del Lago Lodging House was born from a project, rather from an architect from a woman who had always dreamed of having her own stage to sing. Elena Albarado is my name and i studied Tourism and Hotel Management in the city of Ibarra , the capital of Imbabura Province (Northern Ecuador). However, while i studied I also sang, something i have not ceased to do since.

Singing was easier than managing my own hotel, So when i came to Galapagos in 1983 i went directly into the activity of tourism, studying to be a naturalist guide in the beautiful Islands. This is how i was able to mixt both singing and guiding activities onboard of different tourist boats. After 5 years of guiding, t traveled to the United States to better my English speaking skills and to know a new culture for me.

GREAT EXPERIENCE

Looking back, It was a good idea to Leave Ecuador for a bit, because i came back with the resources to fulfill my dream of having a Cultural Café in Galápagos.

In 1.999 I began the construction of Casa del Lago, first as a Cultural cafe with my own stage were i sang and presented my music and i felt during nearly six years of experiencing cultural events…. after that i started with Casa del Lago Lodging House as a Hostel¡¡¡

Actually i manage my own place with all experience and knowledge i have, plenty enough to help you with your visit to Galapagos and the most important …let you fell in Home…¡¡¡

Very Welcome
