Why holiday in the Galapagos Islands?
The Galapagos are a dream destination for most naturalists, a barren cluster of volcanic islands 620 miles off the coast of Ecuador that are literally crawling with original Darwinian wildlife, animals that have evolved so far from humans that they now have no fear of them, allowing tourists to get closer than ever before – on foot or via snorkel – to animals great and small.
Unfortunately tours come at a price, a high price, and also encumbered with concerns about seasickness. See our Galapagos travel guide for suggestions on dealing with the latter problem. Sorry, there’s nothing we can do about your bank balance.
