What's the best value way to see the Galapagos Islands?

Ask our Experts

I’m thinking of visiting the Galápagos Islands. What is the best value way to see the islands e.g. cruise compared to hotel?

Asked by

The most popular way to see the Galápagos is by cruise. There are a number of different vessel types that range from small mid-range yachts to large upmarket cruise liners. There are usually special offers available which can help if the budget is tight.

The cheapest way to see the Galápagos however is by staying in a hotel on the island of Santa Cruz and taking boat excursions out to the other outlying islands – which is a good option if you are prone to sea sickness. WE have several Private Journeys where you can stay on land and discover the islands with active adventures and outdoor sports.

But although staying in a hotel works out cheaper than going on a cruise, you have to bear in mind that you will not get the chance to see the majority of the archipelago as you will need to return to your hotel at the end of each day. Therefore a cruise – although more expensive – is better value, as you will see more islands and more wildlife.
