Galapagos GETTING THERE
Groups heading out to the Galapagos will first fly to Guayaquil, Ecuador. Most international flights schedule create a forced overnight in Guayaquil before flying to the Galapagos the following morning. The flight takes an hour and a half from Guayaquil to San Cristobal Island, Galapagos. Immediately after landing on San Cristobal Island the group will be transferred to the Pimapiro hotel to settle in, then on to one of the four surf spots nearby -depending on the swell and conditions. There should be plenty of time to surf the first day. These surf spots are located within a short walk or boat ride from the main town.
But a trip to the Galapagos is not all about surf, it is about experiencing one of the true environmental wonders of the world. If the surf is not co-operating, or between sessions, you will want to walk in the highlands to see the famous Galapagos tortoises, swim with the sea iguanas and sea lions, snorkel with the sharks or just enjoy the variety of birds including the Blue Footed Boobie.
