Hotel or cruise?

Visiting Galapagos from 1 or more hotels on the islands has its drawbacks. You will only get a limited view of the archipelago.

  • After all, the distance between the islands is great: with a cruise ship, you sail at night and visit the islands during the day. If you spend the night on an island, you can only visit the sites of that island and the closest sites of other islands.
  • The days at the equator offer only 12 hours of sunlight: subtract from that the time for breakfast and boarding, plus the travel time there and back, and there is not really much left over for touring the islands.
  • Santa Cruz can be quite crowded at times due to the many local Ecuadorian tourists who flock to Santa Cruz or San Cristobal..


However, there are two good reasons to do book a hotel in Galapagos:

  • Does the cruise ship of your choice follow an itinerary that does not call at the visitor sites of Santa Cruz or San Cristobal, then you can book a few extra days in a hotel on Santa Cruz or San Cristobal to visit the most beautiful sites of those islands from there. Santa Cruz and San Cristobal are the islands with an airport where you arrive and/or depart.
  • if you want to extend your stay in Galapagos with a relaxing beach vacation then you can either visit the Machalilla region from Guayaquil, or book a few days of beach vacation in a hotel on the islands.


The price difference between the better hotels in Galapagos and a cruise is quite small.
