On the day of departure, please be at the airport in Quito or Guayaquil two hours prior to departure for check-in. A card will be left at your hotel the evening prior with the exact check in time. You must first have your bags inspected by SICGAL as required to travel to Galapagos. Next, look for the Ecoventura representative at the AVIANCA Airline ticket counter to collect your boarding pass, transit card (if prepaid) and get assistance with check in.  Do not stand in line to pay the TCT card if you have already prepaid.  Upon arrival in Galapagos, you may be selected to be fingerprinted to complete the process of the migration control. You will form a line to process passengers for the Park entrance fee. Inform the park representative that you are traveling with Ecoventura if you have prepaid the fee.  They will have a list of prepaid passengers.  Once through, our guides will be waiting for you with signs. New airport policy now requires that you claim your bag. Our crew will  deliver your checked bag to your cabin.  Passengers who choose to travel to Galapagos earlier or choose to purchase tickets on another carrier will not be provided with the same services.
