What's New?

Galapagos in June

Though any month is excellent for visiting Galapagos, many consider the month of June to offer the best weather of the year because of its balance between cooler temperatures and relatively clear sunny skies. It is highly recommended to reserve months in advance and not count on finding a last minute deal, as most all boats fill up, and you may find yourself without a space on a cruise.

Island Hopping in the Galapagos

Island hopping in the Galapagos Islands, also known as land-based tours, is the only other way to see the islands if you are not on a cruise. Cruises used to be the only way to visit the archipelago, but now travelers can base their excursions from a hotel on one of the four main islands to which they will return every night.

Visiting the Galapagos Islands on a Budget

Although the Galapagos Islands host some of the most luxurious cruises and nature lodges, it's also a great destination for those looking to explore the best nature has to offer on a budget. The best way to balance your budget is to plan ahead. A little bit of forward thinking and investigation before your trip can save you a bunch of money.

Planning Galapagos Tours and Cruises from Quito
