Coronavirus (a.k.a. COVID-19) and Galapagos

While this disease is getting a lot of attention and while its immediate health effects are almost all being felt in China, people in the travel industry, and travellers themselves, should be keeping a steady eye on things.   In this regard, at CNH Tours, we are regularly monitoring the reports from the World Health Organization (WHO).  The WHO has a dedicated information page here:

On this page, regular updates on the spread of the disease are posted – see:


Neither of the USA, UK, Canada, Australia and other countries have emitted emitted any advisories in relation to travel to Ecuador in regards to this virus.  Such advisories have been emitted in varying levels of concern for travel to China, South Korea, Iran, Italy, Japan and Hong Kong.  

CNH Tours is monitoring the status of the virus and how it might impact a decision to travel to Galapagos.   We remain confident that there is no reason to be concerned based on the information presnted above.
