Minors between 2 and 16 years old must present a negative result of an RT-PCR test performed up to 72 hours prior to boarding along with the Transit control card issued by the Galapagos Special Regime Government Council as well as the same requirements for mainland Ecuador mentioned above.

From December 1, anyone who has traveled from or through South Africa - where the Omicron strain was first detected - Botswana, Egypt, Mozambique, Lesotho, Zimbabwe, Eswatini and Namibia will not be allowed to enter the country.

Vacations in the Galapagos Islands provide a unique opportunity to encounter and experience animals in their natural habitat. Here you can relax near the Galapagos giant tortoise, swim with playful sea lions, and enjoy the deep blue sea with welcoming iguanas. The island and its surrounding marine environment make up the Galapagos National Park and is listed as a "World Heritage Site" by UNESCO. Since only four islands are inhabited, most islands can only be visited by a certified naturalist guide on a Galapagos yacht approved by the Park Service. Each island has something exclusive to offer.
