Packing and Tipping Guidelines for Galapagos
We've been sharing these guidelines with our guests for years - but only just now have made them available publicly on our website.
Weather in Quito and the Andes is surprisingly cool at night and can even be fresh in the day, particularly if it's overcast. Rain happens from time to time - sometimes shortlived, or sometimes the city is "socked in" for a few days. Galapagos can be cool-ish in the evenings beetween May and December - but is otherwise comfortably warm to hot. The Amazon and mainland coast Ecuador tend to be warm and humid.
And there there is the gear - footwear, headgear, swimsuits... etc. You'll find it all in our guidelines.
Tipping can be awkward for some. Our guidelines will help you navigate that aspect of the trip. Surprise - you don't need to tip in restaurants or hotels. We provide the reasons.
