Although Ecuador has reported few cases, in order to prevent the spread of the coronavirus (COVID-19), the Government and the Galapagos Authorities have declared that: all foreign citizens will be denied entry into the country and to the Islands from midnight on Sunday March 15th and all Ecuadorian citizens or residents from midnight on Monday March 16th.
The disturbance in air travel that this precise decree imply, on flights in and out of Ecuador and the Galapagos Islands, makes impossible to continue our operation in Galapagos until April 8, 2020 for the Coral I & II and April 9th, 2020 for the Galapagos Legend. It’s important to emphasize on the fact that all bookings made until April 8th and 9th respectively will be relocated without penalty.
GO Galapagos by Klein Tours has started running trips in 1983. Through decades of experience, we’ve grown to understand that these global events are inevitable and that we will get through this together with all your support.
To all our partners in the travel industry, like yourself, we thank you for rallying side by side in these tough times. We are in this together and this too shall pass.
We will continue to closely monitor all travel advisories from the Ecuadorian & Galapagos Authorities, the CDC and the WHO, as well as coordinate with our teams on the ground, and revise our plans as necessary. We’ll communicate any revisions on our website and by email.
