The luxury vessel Alya was introduced to the Galapagos Islands on 2017. It’s a part of the luxury catamarans that have been taking over the islands, and part of a larger fleet of vessels. The Alya has some amazing features which anyone would love to enjoy, such as a Jacuzzi on board in the large solarium, external and interior bars, and kayaks as part of the offered activities for guests. In this post I will introduce you to what’s in store with Alya, including itineraries and services, for the year 2019. This’ll help you to decide for yourself if the Alya is the right choice for you to cruise the Galapagos.

A Galapagos cruise could very well be one of the most memorable times of your life. This little volcanic archipelago in the middle of nowhere has truly one-of-a-kind wildlife and an incredible history. It's one of those rare places where you get that perfect mix of bizarre, incredible, and 100% unique. Combining an amazing place like the Galapagos Islands with a luxury cruise? It doesn't get any better than that. The tricky part is deciding which cruise to go for. There are a lot of vessels that can take you exploring seemingly prehistoric world, all with their own pros and cons.

Previously, the Ecuadorian government was planning on making travel insurance a requirement for entering mainland Ecuador. That has since been cancelled and you will not need to demonstrate proof of travel insurance to enter Ecuador. Entering the Galapagos, however, is another story. The latest news (as of me writing this post) is that travel insurance will at some point be a requirement, but there is no information regarding when this will be enforced. This is part of a very long series of enforcement dates that have been pushed back. It was supposed to be going into effect as of November 1st, but now we basically just don't know when this will be mandatory.

Selfies with giant tortoises, marine iguanas and blue-footed boobies while you're on a trip to the Galapagos are definitely Instagram-worthy. Besides plastering social media with mind-blowing photos of the islands, sometimes you simply need to be in contact with the outside world. So what's the Galapagos cell phone coverage like throughout the archipelago? Cell coverage can be spotty. Generally the populated areas have decent coverage, but the uninhabited islands and open ocean are typically out of range. In this article I'll outline what to expect, and what options you have.

Food and travel; one of the most natural pairings of the universe. So with a destination as amazing as the Galapagos Islands, what can you expect to experience for cuisine? In this post we'll go over what's offered on Galapagos cruises - one traveler to another 😁 There's one thing I've learned from my traveling around the world. If you let a great chef cook a meal that he grew up eating, he'll knock it out of the park every time. Ecuador has some amazing dishes that are truly unique to this country. Traditional coastal foods do a great job of showcasing what can come from the ocean. A cruise is quite possibly the best setting to enjoy seafood! Let me introduce you to some traditional Ecuadorian foods that I've absolutely fallen in love with!

Let’s face it – cruises are awesome. Even if they’re just a few days, they’re memorable for years, and well worth all the desktop background pictures at work! When it comes to choosing an actual cruise, though, there are tons of destinations to choose from. Does it matter where you go? Yes. Different cruise destinations offer totally different experiences. You could hardly find more of a contrast between the eco-friendly Galapagos and the glamorous Caribbean.

Believe me when I say we have all been there…. you’re planning a vacation to the Galapagos Islands well in advance. Like a year in advance. Maybe you’re an organized person. I mean like obsessive-Swiss-watchmaker-from-1863 organized. You know, next-level. Or maybe it’s just been your dream to visit the islands since forever, and now that you’ve been gainfully employed for a while and have been able to put a little money aside you’re finally gonna go for it.

So...galapagos travel for puerto ayora, it should be pretty straight forward right? board my plane, reach baltra airport, all that's left is reach the nearest town called Puerto Ayora. Baltra is usually the first place most visitors set foot when arriving to the archipelago, unless you are due to board a Galapagos cruise as soon as you get off the plane. It is up to you to get yourself to the nearest town and let the fun begin. Alright, so where do i take a cab? better yet, let me get an uber Sorry folks, no uber here, what about a cab? that wont work either… at least not directly. So how do you exactly reach the nearest town? (Puerto Ayora).
