The future of the archipelago and its ecosystems is in our hands.
There are no direct international flights to the Galapagos Islands. The only daily flights to the Galapagos Islands depart from the cities of Quito and Guayaquil on mainland Ecuador, if you have the option, fly to Guayaquil to save time since most flights from Quito have a stopover here on the way to Galapagos. Most Galapagos flights to (Baltra Island airport) are either early morning or evening, so you’ll probably need an overnight stay on the mainland.
At Itabaca Channel, you take your bags to the ferry, and place them on the roof! The cost of the ferry is $1.00 for the crossing, and takes about 6 minutes.
It´s a great opportunity for some first pictures of the Galapagos: crystal blue waters, lush green foliage, and hot blue skies!
