    What to bring?

    What do I need to bring
    Passport
    Travel insurance
    Airline tickets
    Credit or debit card (see personal spending money)
    Shirts/t-shirts
    Pairs of long trousers
    Pair hiking pants/track pants

    Quick dry clothing

    How much should I tip?

    Tips are not included in the trip cost. These are entirely at your discretion but there is an expectation to tip for good service. Your guide will help with advice; however, we suggest the below as a guideline per person.

    Guides: USD 10- USD 15 per day

    Of course, you are free to tip more or less, and the amount should be reflective of your perception of service and quality - a tip is not compulsory and should only be given when you receive excellent service.

    What Do I Do about drinking water?

    The tap water in the Galapagos Islands is not always friendly on the stomach for those who haven't been in Latin America for a while. There is purified water in each of the accommodation which you can use to fill up each morning, so be sure to pack a reusable water bottle or two.

    What’s the weather like?

    The Galapagos Islands lie directly on the Equator, so you can expect it to be warm for most of the year. However, it’s not always tropical and Caribbean-like: wind and rain are definitely possible at certain times of year. It’s wise to know these weather patterns before planning your trip so you know when to visit and what to expect.

    The hottest season is generally from December to April with average temperatures ranging from a low of 70 F to a high of 84 F (22 – 31 C). It’s also the rainy season.

    May to November is considered the “cool” season with average temperatures ranging from a low of 68 F to a high of 82 F (19 – 27 C) and frequent overcast skies.

    What vaccinations do I need?

    For the Galapagos Islands, Covid vaccination is required.

    What Travel Insurance do you recommend?

    World Nomads Insurance with a coverage of USD 200 000

    What is the currency?

    US American Dollars

    What is the minimum age for this trip?

    8 years old as a minimum age.
