ABOUT GALÁPAGOS SUITES
 
Galápagos Suites was started as a way to allow people from all over the world to experience the Galapagos Islands while resting in a very comfortable place run by two local women.
 
Joseline Rhor, is a hard-working woman who decided more than a decade ago to migrate from Quito to Galápagos seeking a better future for her two daughters. Since she arrived on the islands, she has been working in the tourism industry with different cruise boat companies. Her main role had been to provide all land services for travelers. In 2009, she openeded Galápagos Suites as a Bed and Breakfast along with her oldest daughter. She truly enjoys providing a comfortable stay in her small hotel and helping guests have a great experience on the islands.
 
Her daughter, Joseline Cardoso, grew up in a special paradise: the Galápagos Islands. She spent her school years in Santa Cruz and when she was eighteen years old she realized that she wanted to become a Naturalist Guide. She went to the United States for a student exchange program for a year and then to Italy, to learn and master the Italian language. She has a Bachelor's degree in Tourism and Hotel Management.
 
In 2005 she was able to accomplish one of her dreams: to become a Naturalist Guide of the Galápagos Islands. Being a Naturalist Guide allows her to share with her guests the wonders of the enchanted islands and the importance of protecting the fragile environment for future generations. In 2009, her second dream came true when she and her mother started their small hotel. She is confident that the hotel offers a high quality lodging opportunity to enhance the experience of the people that decide to participate in community-based tourism.
