Flights to the Galapagos Islands only operate from the two mainland cities of Quito and Guayaquil. Flights originate from Quito; touch down in Guayaquil en route, before arriving in either Baltra or San Cristobal Island. On arrival in the islands you will be met and transferred to your chosen yacht for your Galapagos cruise or transferred to the island hotel. It is essential that clients arrive in Ecuador at least two days before the planned Galapagos cruise. If the international flight arrival was delayed and clients missed the domestic flight and commencement of the cruise, it is not possible to “catch-up”.
