What to bring to the Galapagos islands. Packing list, baggage, luggage.



When packing for a trip to Ecuador and the Galapagos Islands pack lightly!

The fewer things you bring the more carefree and enjoyable your trip will be. It's best to pack your clothes in two bags: one with warmer clothes and city clothes that can be left in your hotel in Quito, and a separate bag for storage of your gear aboard the boat in Galapagos.

You should be able to lock all your luggage regardless of where you are traveling. Following are a few suggestions

    Galapagos islands Swimsuit & Sunblock (a couple of bottles)
