Money will thwart any regulations to limit access to the Galapagos Islands, and excessive tourism and Island population will eventually destroy the Islands' environments and their flora and fauna.

Please not that the limitation is for cruise travel only and it allows for a minimum stay of 3 nights. The maximum stay in the Islands can be stretched to 90 days.
