Galápagos Islands Transportation: 55 reviews and 88 photos


You will travel from Quito or Guayaquil to the Galapagos. TAME schedules daily flights and operates principally out of the Baltra Island airport. A second airline, AeroGal, operates mainly out of the San Cristobal airport.

Things to keep in mind when checking your bags in at the Quito/Guayquil airport:

? All of your luggage will undergo a search for food or plant products that could introduce harmful organizms into the Galapagos ecosystem. Be prepared to open your bags before you check them in at the desk.

? Strict luggage allowances are vigorously enforced. You are permitted 20 kg of checked luggage. Divers typically carry lots of heavy gear, so expect to have to pay an overweight charge of approximately US $2 per kilo if you are taking anything more than the basics.

Once you arrive at Baltra, there is more to the "TO" part of your trip. Read on, in the next tip....
