ISLAND HOPPING

The Galapagos Islands lie almost a thousand kilometers off the coast of Ecuador’s mainland.

Biologically diverse, they are one of the planet’s natural paradises and one of the most visited national parks in the world. The flora and fauna you’ll find here are truly unique. Here, you’ll see unending beaches of marble white sand such as those of Tortuga Bay, tunnels of lava, spectacular diving areas, and a marine reserve, not to mention the prehistoric animals and colorful birds you’ll get a chance to observe.

There are thirteen main islands that make up the archipelago. The climate here is sub-tropical. The Galapagos Islands have two airports with flights to Quito and Guayaquil.

What makes the Galapagos Islands so special (besides its tortoises) is that most of the animals that inhabit it do not flee when they see humans nearby. That happens especially with the sea lions, who you can find sleeping peacefully in the main square of the town; but the best thing is to see them in the water.
