The Galapagos Islands are like no other destination on the planet, and planning a trip here is a completely unique experience as well. First, you need to fly into Quito or Guayaquil, Ecuador as you can only fly to Galapagos from Ecuador's mainland. Most travelers choose to take a Galapagos cruise and sometimes extend their stay with a few extra days on the Islands and some day trips. Others decide to forego the cruise for a Galapagos land-based tour where you sleep in hotels and explore the islands by day. Follow some of the Galapagos travel tips and tricks below so your trip goes smoothly, and if you need additional help, you can always contact one of our Galapagos travel experts for advice.
