Decide between cruises or an independent
The most popular
option to visit the Galapagos Islands is on board a cruise that stops by
different islands, such as the incredible Frigate Yacht. The tour usually lasts
between 4 and 7 days. Although visiting
Galapagos aboard the Yacht Fragata is the most comfortable, fun and easy
option, some travelers choose to visit the Galapagos Islands independently.

Be aware of the weather
There is no bad
time to travel to the Galapagos (although between January and April there are more possibilities of rain), but
the season does influence the fauna and flora that you can see when visiting the Galapagos Islands. If you
want to dive with hammerhead sharks,
a good time would be April or June. There are times of mating of animals such
as the blue-footed boobies or the marine iguanas that are also
impressive, so it is important to inform yourself before.
Booking accommodation is not that
If you think sleeping in the Galapagos is expensive,
you are wrong! In the islands that we have shown you as the favorite islands of tourists, you will find accommodation from
$ 30 a double room. If you do not go in times of high demand such as Easter, Christmas or summer holidays,
you will have no problem booking when you arrive at the place.
These islands are
a natural paradise so we have a duty to preserve them. Follow the rules of the
park and do not touch or feed the animals, do not introduce illegal food and do
not take anything from the park. In summary, practice responsible tourism.
All the animals in Galapagos are completely
free, do not chase them, stay at a distance of 2 meters and do not take photos
using the flash of your camera.
Wear light and comfortable clothes
Getting to know
the Galapagos aboard the Frigate Yacht is, without a doubt, an unforgettable
experience and to make your trip even more comfortable we suggest you carry
light and comfortable luggage. Wearing light clothing, shorts and comfortable
T-shirts, they are the ideal garments for excursions and walks around the
islands. It is very important that you do not forget a hat or cap and a pair of
sunglasses. The sunscreen will complete your protective equipment, because
remember that it is on the equinoctial line and the sun hits directly. If you are browsing this
