Ecuador to Limit Number of Visitors to Galapagos Islands

Travel Weekly | New rules are to be imposed to limit the number of cruise passengers visiting The Galapagos Islands in Ecuador.

Tour operators have until February 1 to incorporate the Galapagos National Park Authority’s new regulations, which are designed to protect the local animal and plant life, into travel programmes.

The rules will allow travellers to stay for a maximum of four nights and five days per ship, with a frequency of four landings within any 14-day period.

The archipelago’s 150,000 annual visitors have been mainly concentrated on the three islands of Isabela, Santa Cruz and San Cristobal for the past 14 years. (Photo credit: T+L Photo Contest)
