Explore the Galapagos Islands
The Galapagos Islands are a top bucket list destination for many travelers. The 19 islands are located 563 miles (906 km) off the coast of Ecuador. They are accessible by direct flights from Quito or Guayaquil. They are now a UNESCO protected site. With continuing seismic activity, the Galapagos’ story is not over. The islands are still physically changing, as are their plant and animal residents.
Made famous as the destination that inspired Charles Darwin’s theory of evolution by natural selection, the islands are home to unique plant and animal life, evolved in complete isolation from South America. Some of its famous inhabitants include the Galapagos giant tortoise, marine iguanas, giant cacti, endemic trees, blue-footed booby, and several finch species, which you can witness on a once-in-a-lifetime Galapagos tour.
