The populated areas of the islands have developed an important hotel base with broad accommodation options. The vast majority of these have programs that give access to different areas of the island they are based on, and some hotels have developed marine operations providing yacht tours that explore different sites of the Galapagos National Park. Visitors are always recommended to ask for as much information as possible about the activities available, and to clarify which activities are and which activities are not included in the price of their trip.
The inhabited islands have a large selection of local tour operators that offer a range of excursions: long walks, beaches, surfing, kayaking, cycling, snorkeling, and scuba diving among others.
This offer allows the modern-day visitor to have a very fulfilling experience while enjoying the natural beauty of the surroundings. We must not forget that the Galapagos community also has a large contingent of artists and artisans who have developed art galleries, souvenir shops, paintings, and handcrafts. And if we were to discuss food, the islands and its marine culture have a range of specialties and delicacies that will delight the most discerning palate.
For those who are looking to maintain contact with the world, the inhabited islands also have several businesses specializing in clothing, as well as cafés, ice cream shops, banks, ATMs, internet cafés and more. Being in the Galapagos can make you feel isolated. The inhabited islands allow us to be connected with to the rest of the planet.
