The Galapagos region
he Galápagos Islands (official name: Archipiélago de Colón ; other Spanish names: Islas de Colón or Islas Galápagos) are an archipelago of volcanic islands distributed on either side of the Equator in the Pacific Ocean, 926 km (500 nmi) west of continental Ecuador, of which they are a part.
The Galápagos Islands and its surrounding waters form an Ecuadorian province, a national park, and a biological marine reserve. The principal language on the islands is Spanish. The islands have a population of slightly over 25,000.
The islands are geologically young and famed for their vast number of endemic species, which were studied by Charles Darwin during the voyage of the Beagle. His observations and collections contributed to the inception of Darwin's theory of evolution by natural selection.
The first crude navigation chart of the islands was made by the buccaneer Ambrose Cowley in 1684.[dubious – discuss] He named the individual islands after some of his fellow pirates or after the British noblemen who helped the privateer's cause. More recently, the Ecuadorian government gave most of the islands Spanish names. While the Spanish names are official, many users (especially ecological researchers) continue to use the older English names, principally because those were the names used when Charles Darwin visited.
Santa Cruz, Galapagos Islands
You have to get to Ecuador mainland first. There are two international airports in Quito (UIO) and Guayaquil (GYE). There are several direct non-stop flights from New York, Houston and Miami to Quito and Guayaquil every day. American Airlines and United / Continental are the main US carriers but DELTA and other airlines fly as well. The main Latin American Carriers are LAN, TACA. Iberia has daily flights from Madrid. KLM flies to Quito and Guayaquil as well.
Most flights arrive late in the afternoon or in the evening. You will most definitely need to spend a night in Quito or Guayaquil before flying to the Galapagos Islands the next day. There are several hotel and transfer options. We can arrange those for you, just contact us.
Flights to the Galapagos depart from Quito or Guayaquil. There are two main airports in the Galapagos Islands, one in Baltra (serves Puerto Ayora in Santa Cruz Island) and one in San Cristobal. There are many flights a day. TAME, AeroGal and LAN are the main carriers. Flights to the Galapagos take about two hours, our Tip Top Travel Lufthansa City Center agency in Quito can arrange flights for you.
The way out process is very similar. You will need to fly from the Galapagos (usually before 12pm) and have a transfer – hotel night in Quito or Guayaquil to take an early flight out the next day. If you can book an international flight leaving after 7pm you might be able to save that night in the mainland.
