"Arriving to/leaving Galapagos Islands" Isla Baltra by MalenaN

Isla Baltra Travel Guide: 5 reviews and 100 photos

When you fly to Galapagos Islands from mainland Ecuador you will either arrive at the airport in Puerto Baquerizo Moreno on San Cristóbal, or to the main airport on Isla Baltra. Isla Baltra is a small, flat island just north of Isla Santa Cruz. There are no visitor sites on Isla Baltra, but people are transferred from here to Isla Santa Cruz, or directly to their cruise boat.

I visited in 2011, 2013 and 2014.

    interesting to read that the entrancefee is 100 $ and they really accept 100 $-bills for that ! ;-)
    I know of course that with large bills it is always a Problem, BUT I have never heared of a place where a given Price has to be payed by smaller notes instead of the exacte amount !

      Galapagos Islands have some excellent diving, especially around the islands Darwin and Wolf. This page is about the island Baltra where the main airport is situated and where there are no visitor sites.
