Health and Safety Information

When you travel to Galápagos, you can feel confident you’ll always be taken care of as well as that you’re experiencing one of the most magical places in the world. 

The number of visitors is limited (even with 100% vaccination among locals), and the authorities have the important job of protecting and preserving the fragile ecosystem as well as the beauty and health of the islands. So you can trust us when we say we take safety extremely seriously! 

Read below to find out more about what we do to keep you safe. 

Galápagos National Park Policies 

New policies have been put in place to keep you safe with the reopening of the Galápagos National Park and Marine Reserve!

Some new safety measures include:

  • Mandatory use of a mask at all times
  • Antibacterial gel/alcohol
  • Social distancing of 6 feet (2 meters)
  • Visiting sites near towns are accessible for 3 hours maximum at a time in order to take more vulnerable people into consideration

You can also visit the Galápagos Conservancy for the ‘14 rules of the Galapagos National Park Directorate (GNPD) that all visitors are expected to abide by while in the Islands’ and additional helpful information.
