My husband and i are part of a home exchange website. A family from Quito Ecuador stayed with us last year so this year we are visiting them. since we stay with them for free, this is a great deal. While we are there, we plan to fly from quito to the Galapagos islands for only three nights, since this is all we can afford to pay for lodging on this trip (i got laid off recently) i see alot of the posts are about ships and boat trips through travel agencies...Since we are flying and staying three nights..can we get little boats that go in one day to other islands so we are not stuck on the same island all three days? do boats go back and forth from some of the islands and does anyone know the prices? i dont know how close together the islands are so i couldnt even begin to figue prices, this is a trip of a lifetime for us and if we were wealthy, we'd be able to stay longer and enjoy more, but most of our vacations are short due to money restraints, forcing us to go-go-go the whole trip and experince as much as possible..
thanks for any help!
