Reviewed September 1, 2011

My family of 3 went on a 7-night cruise aboard the Explorer II to the Galapagos Islands this past May 2011. The weather in Ecuador & the Galapagos is perfect in May. The first place we explored was Cerro Dragon or Dragon Hill which is located in Santa Cruz island. The landing from our inflatable zodiac boat was dry. Wear pants, long sleeves and closed shoes in this place because you'll be walking past rough bushes. Cerro Dragon is my least favorite place because I did not enjoy walking in the rough bushes for a long time which made me itch all over. It's better to bring shoes good for dry or wet conditions and comfortable for walking. Also wear a hat that is secured to your head for sun protection. We saw giant cacti, iguanas, pelicans, sea lions, colorful lizards, Darwin finches, and Great Blue Herons here. We had a wet "take off" back to our zodiac. The Galapagos has unbelievable sceneries, beautiful sunrise & sunsets. We learned a lot about nature, ecology, and appreciation of wild life after visiting the Galapagos.
