Wetsuit to buy/rent for snorkeling independently

Wetsuit to buy/rent for snorkeling independently
Save

Hi, I am travelling to the Galapagos Islands next week (end Nov - beginning Dec). Staying for 2 weeks and planning on splitting my time between the islands with a few day trips, but mostly snorkeling independently (no multi day cruise).

I really suffer with cold weather and am very concerned about the water temperature when snorkeling. Does anyone have any idea where I can buy or rent a wetsuit whether in Galapagos or beforehand in Guayaquil? Second-hand would be fine as I'd rather not spend loads, but I think I really need one for the trip to be enjoyable.

Thank you!

Sophie

Rent it on the day you'll need it from one of the many shops is town.

A short wetsuit will be $5 and a long one $10.
