GALAPAGOS TRAVEL TIPS

22Sep

CLOTHING

In the highlands region, it is best to dress in layers since temperatures vary, beginning and ending the day quite cool but becoming warm in the midday sun. Wear a sweater over a light shirt and T-shirt, and carry a light, preferably water resistant jacket and umbrella, especially during the rainy season.

In the tropical climates, light cotton clothing is recommended. Bring along a sweater or light jacket since it can cool off in the evenings. In the jungle regions, long-sleeved shirts and long cotton pants, as well as a good pair of walking shoes, are recommended.

PASSPORT AND VISAS

All visitors to Ecuador must have a passport valid for at least six months.Upon entry, all visitors are required to complete a brief international embarkation/ disembarkation card, which is stamped along with your passport. Keep this card in your passport, as it will be required when leaving the country.
