Hi there,

was wondering if anyone could give me any info on costs/ how easy it is/accomodation on the islands, booking it and other tips on visiting the galapagos? A friend and i would like to visit but are unsure due to the high prices - are there any tips on making it cheaper? We were thinking of visiting for 1 wk, is this enough?

Any help would be kindly appreciated,

Hi swilkins

flight from Guayaquil/Quito to the Galapagos $300-$350.00
entrance fee to the Galapagos $ 100.00 to pay in cash at the airport.
so this goes on top of accommodation and boattrips.
what ever you try,Galapagos is not cheap.

I've read some tips that it's best to go a little bit more upmarket, just to experience the most out of your trip, but it would be around 1000 dollar for a week. Have fun!
