ISLAS GALAPAGOS

Welcome to Galapagos

Galapagos Island is famous for its rich biodiversity and place of Charles Darwin’s research on the theory of evolution.

The Galapagos Islands are situated approximately 1,000 km (or a little over 600 mi.) from the Ecuadorian mainland.

The Archipielago de Colon formed between 3 million and 5 million years ago, the Galapagos Islands are relatively young, It consists of 13 main islands of which only five are inhabited. These islands are home to a unique diversity of plant, animal, and marine life that regularly attract tourists and nature lovers alike, including sea lions, land and marine iguanas, giant tortoises and of course, Lonesome George, the only known living tortoise of his species.

Why To Choose Galapagos

The Galapagos Islands. You have dreamt of it for a lifetime. A place where history has been made. For centuries, home to pirates and whalers, but mostly to highly unusual fauna, and an inspiration for Darwin’s theory as presented in On the Origin of Species. Not to mention it is one of the few places on Earth where the wildlife shows no fear of humans.

When trying to pick the best Galapagos cruise, it is easy to feel overwhelmed. There are so many different options out there. I often see travellers on this forum looking for the best cruise option for them.

When you are making your Galapagos cruise comparisons, it is important to think about what type of boat you would like to be on, how many passengers you want to share that boat with, and how long you would like to go for, along with of course your target budget.
