Baggage Tips & Packing list

Baggage Tips

  • Each passenger is allowed to carry up to 20 kg (44 pounds) aside from a hand-luggage of 8kg (17 pounds)
  • Fruits, seeds, are not allowed to be taken to Galapagos. There will be controls at departing and arriving airports.
  • No animal, plant or mineral may be removed from the islands. Stick, stones, sand or bones must be left where found.
  • Please be careful not to transport any live material to the islands or from island to island. Each one has its unique fauna and flora and introductions can quickly destroy their balance.
