Look At the Marvel of the Galapagos Islands

The Galapagos Islands is a volcanic archipelago in the Pacific Ocean. It’s considered one of the world’s foremost destinations for wildlife-viewing. A province of Ecuador, it lies about 1,000km off its coast. Its isolated terrain shelters a diversity of plant and animal species, many found nowhere else. Charles Darwin visited in 1835, and his observation of the many species there later inspired his theory of evolution.

We have several partners that offer a wide array of options to see this isolated land. You can visit on a small ultra-luxury ship that is all-inclusive and can bring you close to the action and wildlife.

Here is a link to an article on what you should know about the area.

The Galapagos Conservancy is a group that is dedicated to the preservation of the area. Travel to the area is regulated and the best way to experience it is on an exploration cruise. While visiting, you can see wildlife such as giant tortoises and marine Iguanas to whale sharks and Galapagos penguins.

Do not expect to get a “DEAL” or to travel there on the cheap. Travel to the Galapagos can be awfully expensive, but it will be worth every dollar. Beisdes a cruise, you can fly in and stay at Santa Cruz and San Cristóbal islands. There is no BAD time of the year to go. June through December are the cooler and drier months. Even though this is the dry season, a garúa (or light, misty rain) is still possible, particularly in December. Skies can be cloudy and gray. January through May are the warmer and wetter months, but the rain creates brilliantly clear blue skies between showers — great for photography. March and April tend to be the hottest and wettest months, while August tends to be the coolest time.
