The chain of islands named the Galapagos are one of the most delightful destinations in Ecuador and home to giant turtles, the ancient iguana and other one-of-a-kind species. Also known as `The Enchanted Islands´ the Galapagos islands are truly blissful, with dazzling white sand beaches, lava tunnels, unique indigenous plants and wildlife.
The Galapagos Islands arouse your senses and make you see things differently. It is the only place where you can have a staring contest with animals..and lose.
You will feel as if you have slid into another dimension, an exotic, idealistic community run by sea lions – the golden retrievers of the Galapagos, and organized by law of mutual aid. The distinctive thing is that the animals act as if the tourists are nothing more than slightly irritating photographers.
The islands have taken on a mythical status, this reputation aided by the most famous visitor, Charles Dickens. Yet you don’t have to be an evolution expert to appreciate one of the last places on our earth where human presence is minimal.
