Hi, I'm off to the Galapagos (and therefore Ecuador) would anti- malaria drugs be advised- mainly for the Ecuador part? Neil.
The risk of malaria on the Galapagos islands is small and does not warrant the use of antimalarials, however below 1500m on the mainland does have a significant risk of malaria (see link, areas marked in red) and prescription antimalarial medication is recommended. You should see your local travel nurse, GP or Nomad travel clinic for specific advice. You should also prevent the mosquitoes from biting by covering up as much as possible and using suitable insect repellent (containing up to 50% deet) on exposed skin
