OK Galapagos

September 28, 2011 § 1 Comment

A new program OK Galapagos was put into action last week in Puerto Villamil on the Island of Isabela and Puerto Baquerizo Moreno on the island of San Cristobal.  The OK Galapagos which was established by the Ministry of Tourism allows visitors to easily identify certified local operators while traveling in the Galapagos Islands. 

The operators of hotels, boats, ground transportation, restaurants, bars and local guides on both Isabela and San Cristobal enthusiastically embraced the new program.  The participating agencies have been given buttons, stickers, and signs allowing visitors to easily identify the operator as one working in compliance with the Ministry of Tourism to provide quality services within the islands. 

The OK Galapagos campaign is designed to provide tourists confidence when booking services within the Galapagos Islands.  The “OK” sign identifies agencies which are working within the scope of the law and providing fair and professional services.  Tourists are given the opportunity to provide feedback of the agencies with the Ministry of Tourism and any agency receiving complaints regarding violations of local regulations are subject to prosecution and punishment by the authorities of the  Ministry of Tourism.

We applaud the Ministry of Tourism for the new program and its efforts to regulate the local tourism companies operating in Galapagos.
