Safety in Galapagos Islands

Staying Safe

The Galapagos Islands, an hour and a half flight from mainland Ecuador, enjoys the privilege of a secure environment, as travel to and from the islands and into the national park is controlled upon arrival and departure by the Galapagos park service. The residents of the Galapagos are few, and most work to support the tourism industry of this prime example of Darwinism.

Wondering about the dangers of the local animal population? Many travelers are surprised to discover that the animals, far from being dangerous, generally ignore the temporary visitor, going about their daily business, having never been threatened by mankind. From giant turtles to iguanas and blue-footed bubbies, the traveler can have close contact without fear of danger.
