Three days enough for the Galapagos Islands?

Jump to last reply

Hi all - I'm in the middle of a motorcycle tour of South America and will be in Ecuador in two weeks. Unfortunately we have a week to spend in Ecuador as a whole and I was wondering, a) is it worth spending half our Ecuador stay in Galapagos Islands and b) is three days enough to get a good taste of what the Galapagos Islands have to offer? How much can we expect to spend on a round trip there from Ecuador and what's the best place to fly our of?

Thanks much!
Kevin
