Located about 600 miles from the Ecuadorian coast, Galapagos Islands, also called “The enchanted islands”, host Ecuador’s most significant National Park, and one of the most important parks in the world. Because of this, UNESCO has declared the Galapagos Islands a ‘World Heritage Site’
The Archipiélago of Galápagos is of volcanic origin and its islands emerged from the bottom of the Pacific Ocean more than 6 million years ago. This natural sanctuary is contains of 13 main islands, 6 minor islands and more than 40 rocks and islets.
There is no other place in the world where you will be able to discover the magic and the beauty of a natural bio-diverse laboratory. It was in 1835 that Charles Darwin wrote his theory of the evolution of species here, and the same place where those same species are still in their natural state today. Thanks to the endemic species found in the region, the Galapagos cruises and tours are particularly popular among wildlife lovers.
In the Galapagos, you find marine and land iguanas, blue and red-footed boobies, penguins, more than 13 finch species, sea lions, sharks, whales, and the famous Galapagos tortoises (which gave their name to the islands). The abundant sea life makes the islands an ideal place for snorkeling and scuba diving.
