Are there any fees and / or taxes in Galapagos?

Yes, there are. First you will have to pay for a transit card at your origin in Quito or Guayaquil. After the flight, you will arrive to the Islands and pay the Galapagos National Park fee. The entry fee has to be paid in cash. The fee will give you access to the natural protected area of the Galapagos Islands.

What are the taxes in the Galapagos? Tipping? Are there price differences for foreigners?

Standard service charges are 10% and VAT is 12%. A 10% tip is accustomed on top of the 10% service charge (20% total). In some situations a two-tier pricing system is in place.
