Boating – There is a ton to see via boat when visiting the Galapagos. From marine life to snorkeling, there are tons to see and to do. You can even spend your trip entirely on a boat if you’d like! Nevertheless, for the best boating experience, you should not forget to apply ample sunscreen. Supplement this with a comfy sun hat for optimal sun protection. Keep your clothing light, wearing things like loose t-shirts, swimsuits, and shorts. You should also bring water shoes, as they ensure complete foot protection on and off the boat.
Snorkeling – Snorkeling in the Galapagos is an unforgettable experience. You got to do it! Pack lightly for your snorkeling adventure. An athletic swimsuit, loose t-shirt, and flip flops will get you by. For women, it is useful to bring a sarong or cover-up along as well. Remember to leave your jewelry and random accessories behind. You do not want those to get lost at sea.
Cliff Jumping – There are some impressive cliffs to take advantage of in the Galapagos. If going on a cliff-jumping adventure, all you need is an athletic bathing suit and water shoes. If you feel a little daring, bring your phone in an underwater case along as well. You never know what you will find once you splash into the gorgeous waters.
Hiking – There are some amazing hikes to take advantage of throughout the archipelago. It is a great idea to pack lightly so that you do not feel weighed down on your adventure. An ultra-lightweight backpack is necessary. Also, hiking is when you will experience the largest temperature changes. Therefore, it is always best to wear layers and pack an extra jacket. If it is the dry season, put a lightweight down jacket in your backpack. If it is the wet season, pack a rain jacket and umbrella. Do not forget your binoculars as well to spot all the incredible wildlife.
Market Strolling – There are some casual, less active experiences in the Galapagos too! Strolling through the food and farmers’ markets is a fabulous cultural experience. You will be in sensory overload, as you smell and taste all the wonderful local delicacies. A t-shirt and a comfortable part of linen pants or jeans are enough to feel comfortable. Do not forget comfortable sandals and a tote bag or cotton grocery bag to carry all your market treats.
