Theres no requirement for anything. Just sail in.
We were also given all the stupid misinformation and I was seriously wondering wether we would just get tossed out on arrival.
Of course its just like a normal port of call. We went to St Christobal and stayed a week but had a 30 day 5 port permit
granted on arrival for about US$120 all up.
was US$1 per gallon!
But we had to buy it ourselves, not letting the agent buy it as it would cost double. They try and tell you its illegal for anyone to sell deisel except agent LOLOLOL. We hopped in a taxi and dragged the gerrys to the gas station.
Galapagos is unmissable!!!!!
Book tours only when you get there. Full day tours snorkeling with sealions etc are US$45
