MAIN FAQS ABOUT GALAPAGOS
  • How Can I discover Galapagos while I learn Spanish?

    Galapagos Language Academy provides the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to learn Spanish in the Galapagos islands while experiencing unique cultural and touristic activities and. You have the liberty to design your own itinerary or you can choose from our itineraries, the activities you would like to do during the length of your stay. In addition, if you would like to stay longer we can suggest and plan extra activities.

    Our combined program are designed for those with an adventurous spirit who are looking to explore both the Spanish language and the iconic locations that make Galapagos a unique travel destination.

  • How long can I stay in Galapagos?

    While you will be issued with a 90-day tourism visa on arrival in Ecuador, you are only permitted to stay for a maximum 60 days in Galapagos under the very strict migration laws in place for the Islands. Only Galapagos residents are permitted to work in the Islands. Plan to come to Galapagos and enjoy your vacation, but do not plan to stay without ensuring that your paperwork is in order. The Galapagos Special Law requires that you process a visa or special permission for any category of staying in Galapagos that is not tourism before arriving in Ecuador and with the local authority — the Galapagos Governing Council.

    IMPORTANT
    Depending on the course length, you may or may not need a VISA to stay in the country. If you come to study for up to 90 days, you DO NOT NEED a visa. However, if you are planning to stay longer than that period of time, you will need to get a visa. We will be happy to help you with this process.

  • When is the best time to travel to the Galapagos?

    Since the climate is pleasant all year round, there is no "best" or "better" time to fly to the Galapagos. However, you might take other factors, such as High Season vs. Low Season etc. into account.

  • Should visitors with special needs travel to Galapagos?

    Galapagos is not an easy destination for someone dependent on a walker or a wheelchair, unsteady on their feet, or only able to walk short distances. Travel companies may not be able to accommodate mobilizing a person with physical limitations, but you will need to confirm this with your tour company or hotel. Galapagos travel generally includes getting on and off moving dinghies, up and down stairs on a moving vessel, and negotiating uneven terrain.

    One option could include a land-based visit staying on one specific island with the opportunity for day trips to nearby sites. Taxis are available to assist in transportation and, if swimming and snorkeling are possible, Galapagos can offer enjoyable water options at the beaches close to the towns.

  • What about accommodations?

    Host families are all within easy walking distance of the school.  All of the rooms are clean and comfortable. You will also be provided with three cooked meals a day (breakfast, lunch and dinner), laundry service, bed linens and wifi. Special diets can be accommodated for with prior notice. Please note that this will incur an additional fee.

    We make sure that all our students have a happy, safe home to return to after school. All our host families have been carefully selected by us and some have been working with us for years. Homestays are designed to give a family feel, and could be one or more adults with or without Children. We have a large selection of families to choose from and they have all been police checked.
