There is an entrance fee of P20 for the day or P40 for an overnight stay in the park. This will be paid at the tourist office in Lucap [3].

Lodging[edit]

Lodging is possible on Governor's islands in a very expensive cottage (P10,000/night). Most lodging is in Lucap however, from transient rooms to hotels, starting at P250/person/night. For more information about lodging, consult with the tourist office.

Camping[edit]

It is possible to camp on the islands and the tourist office will help you with renting a tent. You can choose to sleep on one of the three big (inhabited) islands, or sleep on the beach of one of the uninhabited ones. If you decide to go for the latter, ask your boatsman about the best island to overnight, to make sure that the tide does not take your tent away while you are sleeping. One of the possible islands is Scout Island.
