Galapagos Islands

Located on the equator nearly 600 miles out to sea off the coast of Ecuador,
13 main islands are surrounded by dozens of islets and crystal blue tropical waters.

Stunning your eyes, mesmerizing your mind, and renewing your spirit, the Galapagos Islands are an experience to treasure. Where volcanoes meet the sea, and Darwin’s species flourish with unrivaled diversity and vibrancy, Ecuador’s “Archipelago de Colon,” is a place to reconnect with the beauty and wonders that our natural world can offer.

Geographically diverse, the Galapagos Islands include some of the world’s most active volcanoes, as well as lush rainforests and pristine beaches.

Bird is the Word

The islands that were the renowned inspiration for Darwin’s “Origin of the Species,” boast more than one thousand species of birds, including over 100 different varieties of hummingbirds alone. Spot penguins and flamingos, and marvel at the largest tortoises that live to be over 100 years old.

Wildlife can be embraced intimately because the animals have no natural predators and no fear of human visitors. You may find yourself on the beach with a group of iguanas or penguins. Giant tortoises, lava lizards, sea lions, and angel fish are just a few of the hundreds of species that call the Galapagos home.

Climate

Temperatures usually range between 60 and 80 degrees, but what changes is whether it is wet or dry. December to May is warm and wet with clears skies. This is the perfect time to watch bird nesting. June through November is considered dry and cooler.

History

These unique islands were officially discovered in 1535 and visited by Charles Darwin 300 years later. Based on his observations and inspirations of animals on the islands, Darwin developed his theory of natural selection. After becoming a national park in the late 1950s, UNESCO declared the islands a World Heritage Site.
