Galapagos Is Airport (GPS)
On the Galapagos Islands, there are two main airports: Baltra (Seymour Airport) and San Cristobal (Puerto Baquerizo Moreno Airport). It is often difficult to fly in or out of San Cristobal during high season as seats are often taken by tourists or Galapagos residents.
Seymour Airport (GPS) is located on Baltra, one of the Galapagos Islands in Ecuador. Passengers flying into Baltra will connect through Quito on one of three airlines: Avianca, LATAM Airlines Ecuador, or TAME.
Travellers heading to the Galapagos can find cheap flights, book accommodation, and reserve a car rental with Skyscanner. Skyscanner's Price Alert tool will deliver notifications of price changes and will provide the opportunity to book at the best time to lock in the best available price.
Best Time to Book a Flight to Galapagos Is Airport
Going to the Galapagos is all about catching a glimpse of the wildlife. Sea mammals and land birds tend be most active from June-Dec, though the weather is cool and dry and waters tend to be choppier. During the months of January-May, travellers will also experience sunnier days, warmer temperatures, and calmer waters.
What to Expect When Arriving at the Airport
GPS is a national airport and while it is nice, it is very basic. Amenities you might expect to have access to at other airports are not available here, aside from a small gift shop.
The airport is located on a different island from the main city, Santa Cruz, where most hotels are located and most tours depart from. Just outside the GPS, buses wait to take passengers on a quick 10-minute journey to the dock where ferries and water taxis offer service to Santa Cruz Island.
What to See and Do in the Galapagos
This volcanic archipelago served as the inspiration for Charles Darwin's Theory of Evolution and it's not hard to see why. While the tourism industry is growing quickly due to the number of foreign visitors each year, this South American paradise has managed to keep the human footprint to a minimum. Due to a lack of predators and a favourable environment, giant sea tortoises and sea lions let visitors get up close and personal, making for a pretty magical experience. To witness earth's biodiversity at its finest, use Skyscanner to plan your trip now.
