To further benefit the community on Floreana island G has provided training to residents for all aspects of tourism, including food preparation and service.
The community will provide your meals while staying on this small island. The meals are rotated amongst different community members in order to spread
out the benefits of tourism. While eating at the community restaurants you will be contributing to the self-sufficiency of the first community tourism operator
in the Galpagos.
Your G for Good Moment: Floreana Community Guesthouse
Floreana Island is a small, isolated, inhabited island part of the Galpagos Archipelago. Many of its residents have been living there for the past three
generations since the islands were first colonized. Its 150 residents have tried to benefit from the tourism boom, but since most tourism is marine-based and
the boats don't stop in the village, they have struggled to find any opportunities. We are investing in community training and infrastructure to develop the first
ecological, community tourism program in the Galpagos Islands that sees both the island's small entrepreneurs and its unique wildlife as the primary
beneficiaries of this project.

The Ecuadorian government currently levies a Galpagos Islands Park entry fee of $100 USD per person. This is payable at the airport
upon arrival in the park. It is not included in the cost of the tour and must be paid in CASH. This fee funds Park maintenance and supervision in Galpagos, as well as ecological study, conservation, and infrastructure development in Ecuador's other National Parks.
Entry fees and the funds they generate for the National Park System are among measures taken by the Ecuadorian government to protect its natural heritage.

The Consejo de Gobierno (local government council) has implemented a system of Transit Control Cards at a fee of $20 USD per person.
This card is to be purchased in CASH at a counter in the Quito
airport before boarding the flight to the Galapagos. Please retain
this card along with your passport as you will be required to
present this upon arrival to the Galapagos Islands. Please note
that this applies to all tourists entering the Galapagos Islands
and is a supplement to the existing entry fee to the National Park
and is not controlled by tour operators or travel agencies. It is
the first of a number of initiatives to track, control and maintain
the sustainable tourism targets set out by the Galapagos National
Park and the Ecuadorian government in an attempt to preserve the
fragile environment of the archipelago.

All travelers are required to pay the tax on domestic flights in
Ecuador. Foreign travelers are exempt from this, and proving you
are indeed a foreign traveler can be done by providing us with
your international ticket number (ITN). Travelers who do not
submit international ticket numbers at least 30 days prior to Day 1
of their tour will be required to pay the domestic tax on all included flights.

About Accommodation
Please note that hot water shortages and power outages can be
fairly common in Galapagos. We appreciate your patience and
understanding that these occurrences are outside of our control.
Floreana Island
Please note that due to its remote location, we do stay at a simple
lodge on Floreana Island and services and amenities may be a bit
more simple than in other hotels on this trip. The experience of
staying in a more remote and less-visited spot, more than makes up
for a few less frills.
