What about getting money in the Galapagos? Cash on board?

The legal currency is US Dollars and no other currencies are accepted in regular businesses. International card ATM machines are available in Puerto Baquerizo Moreno (San Cristobal) and Puerto Ayora (Santa Cruz).

There is not ATM machine at the Baltra airport (serves Santra Cruz). Traveller cheques are accepted. International checks are usually not welcome.

Many restaurants and boutiques accept credit card, a minimum fee and a 6 – 9% surcharge could be required.

On boar a live-aboard boat you will generally need cash for surcharges, tips, etc.
