From Quito, students can fly roundtrip for approximately US$350-$400 through either TAME airlines or Aerogal airlines to the Baltra Aeropuerto (GPS) on the Island of Baltra.

Arrival by Bus

From the airport students will take a bus to the island, which will include one ferry crossing.

Transportation on the Galapagos Islands

The Galapagos are a desirable region because of the tranquility and nature that is preserved there. This means that there is not a large infrastructure of roads and bridges. Getting around is not difficult, but may require walking, bike riding, and the occasional taxi or collectivo ride, which you can find easily in a Parada.
