Promotions for Galapagos Islands and Ecuador Tours
Special discounts and budget-friendly travel packages
We have good news for you. There are many small guest houses and hotels in Ecuador and the Galapagos Islands. You can expect to be greeted with a clean room and comfortable bed. These types of accommodations are definitely a bargain and well worth your money. Ecuador is not a typical tourist spot and therefore the hotels and accommodations are usually small but charming. Transport is also cheap in Ecuador as one gallon of diesel cost around 1.5USD. This makes buses and taxis very affordable. However, new means of transport can be rather expensive due to high vehicle import tax. TAME, the Ecuadorian national airline offers the cheapest flights, but they are not always reliable time-wise.
Exploring Galapagos Islands by cruise
If you intend to book a cruise on the Galapagos Islands, you should do it through the tour operator with direct contact with the shipping company. This is the only circumstance where the cruise will wait for passengers with delayed flights.
Of course, if you want to get a great deal for the Galapagos cruise, you will have to be patient and make your bookings at short notice. Around three months before departure, some reservations are freed up and these spots are offered at a discounted price. However, there are also ships and cruises where every spot is completely booked out. That is why we advise you to make your booking early and plan the rest of your trip and excursions around it. It is important to book your cruise with a reliable travel operator as many local and international agencies have disappeared from the market.
If you are a single traveler, some ships offer bookings for half a cabin. At times, three persons can also share a triple-cabin. Both options come with great prices. The special prices are not shown on websites and must be enquired directly from the cruise company. The price difference between various cruise providers are not great and contrary to popular belief, local providers do not offer cheaper prices. Therefore, the most important factor to look out for (besides the price) while you are booking your cruise is a reliable provider that operates according to the travel law. Here at Galapagos PRO, we operate according to the German travel law which considered to be one of the best in the world. Take your time to look at the wide range of cruises listed on our website.
