The Galapagos Islands

A trip to the Galapagos Islands is a once in a lifetime adventure. But it doesn't have to be super expensive. Use this guide to plan a budget friendly Galapagos Islands itinerary.

Santa Cruz Island

Santa Cruz is the main island in the Galapagos Islands and where you can take ferries or day trips to other islands.

Best Snorkeling Spot

Las Grietas is the best snorkeling spot on Santa Cruz Island and getting there is just as much a part of the adventure!

Isabela Island

Isla Isabela is the best of the main three islands, in my opinion! Picture dirt roads, easily accessible white sand beaches, and wildlife galore.

Best Snorkeling Tour

The best snorkeling on the Galapagos Islands is the Los Tuneles day trip from Isabela Island. You'll see turtles, sharks, and blue-footed boobies!

San Cristóbal Island

End your trip on San Cristóbal Island where you'll find a large fur seal population, stunning sunsets, and unique hikes!

Best Snorkeling Tour

The 360 Tour to Kicker Rock is an amazing snorkeling tour. You'll visit pristine beaches and end with a snorkel through Kicker Rock where you may see Hammerhead sharks!
