What vaccinations do I need to visit the Galapagos Islands and Ecuador?

There are no vaccinations required to visit the Galapagos Islands. If you are planning to spend more time in Ecuador, especially in the rain forest or Amazon area, vaccinations and immunizations are strongly recommended.  However, health recommendations and required vaccinations change frequently, so we recommend that you consult your health provider several weeks before your trip. You should also visit the Center for Disease Control (CDC) for more information.
