A very special trip. Went with some friends and spent the most wonderful week of my life on the Galapagos. A credi to the Ecuadorean Government and the Darwin Foundation for keeping the Enchanted Islands pristine and mostly unaffected by human presence. The Pinta Yacht was a great experience. Professional and knowledgeable guides, top staff, wonderful and healthty food, safety observed at every moment.
Highly recommend snorkling if you are able to do it. Champion Island was like being in the middle of the largest aquarium with thousands of fish and sea lions around you.
The Galapagos Islands are a part of Ecuador. A visit to Quito, Papallacta, Otavalo for 3 to 4 days before or after would make it a wonderful trip. A few days in the Amazon River basin that begins on the East side of the Andes in Ecuador would compliment this trip.
Let me know if you need some advice.
