Full Week Tours to the Galapagos Islands
While it is possible to spend a little less time in Galapagos with a shorter itinerary, with the costs involved in getting there, we always recommend the longer trip. But, if you only have a week, we recommend the following:
Add a day tour of Guayaquil including the zoological park and Malecon 2000 for $165.00 per person, moves the return day to Day 7, Saturday ; includes extra hotel, food, guide, and transportation.
Replacing Santa Cruz with Lobo Island where Blue-footed boobies and giant frigate birds are usually nesting (staying on San Cristobal) would cost $ 1845.00 per person.
These prices include all charges in Ecuador from arrival at Guayaquil airport until return to Guayaquil airport except the Galapagos National Park Fee and alcoholic beverages. $50.00 per person discount for check or money order payments.
Remember, we can customize all itineraries if would like to make some changes. All costs assume double occupancy or family occupancy and a minimum of 4 people.

|Day 1||Sunday – Fly from home to Guayaquil, Ecuador.|
|Day 2||Monday – Fly to San Cristobal, Galapagos , in the morning; visit the Darwin Interpretation Center and Snorkel where Darwin first landed in Galapagos, Tijeretas Bay – enjoy sea lions, tropical coral and fish, and maybe a green sea turtle. All meals provided.|
|Day 3||Tuesday- Take a trip to Leon Dormido, also known as “Kicker Rock.” Enjoy the marine life, swim with sea lions, sea turtles, and 2 or 3 species of sharks common in the area. Lunch on board, and some time at a beautiful beach before a late afternoon return to town.|
|Day 4||Wednesday- Head for the high country where El Junco volcano beckons, with a short walk up the staircase to the top and beautiful lagoon. If the clouds cooperate, you can see for miles from the top and possibly another island or two. You will also visit the Galapaguera, the tortoise breeding center, to see tortoises roaming along side of you in their natural habitat, and babies in protective cages, as young as a few months old. If you are luck, Genesis, the first one born there, will also be out to greet you. A short stop at a beautiful beach and lunch at a secluded restaurant nearby will complete the trip and have you back in town in the late afternoon.|
|Day 5||Thursday - If schedule permits, a trip to Espanola Island is a rare treat at one of the scenic islands in Galapagos. Here the world’s population of waved albatrosses are found, as well as the “blow hole” seen on all of the documentaries, Nazca and blue-footed boobies, and the most colorful, red-sided marine iguanas. Many more animals grace this secluded island and it may well be the highlight of your visit. Back to San Cristobal in time for dinner and shopping.|
|Day 6||Friday - morning flight after breakfast to Guayaquil completes your trip. You should be in time to make a late night return to the U.S.A.|
