Southern Hemisphere cyclone season can be considered to start in December.
In June 2009, we spent $270 to check in/out of Wreck Bay, Isla San Cristobal, Galapagos. The break down was $100 for the agent (required by Ecuadorian Law), $135 for check-in paper work and $35 for check out. For that we were allowed to stay 21 days in Wreck Bay. It can be well over $700 if you want to take your yacht to more then one island. For that you need an 'autografo', a special permit
. With and Autografo you can go to three islands (big woop).
It was totally worth the $270 for Wreck Bay, we saw some really cool stuff and would do it again.
