For those traveling to Galapagos:
Due to the recent civil unrest in Ecuador, the US State Department issued a Level 2 Travel Advisory for the entire country, which urges travelers to exercise increased caution, and a Level 4 “Do Not Travel” advisory for specific cities within the country. We recommend regularly checking the State Department’s website for Ecuador here for the latest information.
The State Department suggests checking with your travel agent, reviewing your flight status, having a contingency plan, and enrolling in their Smart Traveler Enrollment Program (STEP), among others. In addition to checking their website, you can follow them on Twitter and Facebook for the latest announcements.
