Find the top-rated 5-day Galapagos cruises as chosen by Adventure Life's team of Galapagos travel experts. A 5-day cruise is an excellent balance between cost and adequate time on the islands as five days total gives you a full three days exploring the wonders of the Galapagos (the first and last day of each cruise is normally used to fly between the Ecuadorian mainland and Galapagos.) Even then, travelers frequently find themselves wanting more time to enjoy this unique archipelago and crave an additional day or two or three on the islands. Consider staying in a hotel on the islands of Santa Cruz, San Cristobal, Floreana or Isabela. Alternatively, consider an 8-day cruise, as most experts claim 8-day itinerary to be the ideal amount of time to visit the Galapagos. Still can't decide? Contact us for expert advice.
