"No hay lugar como Galapagos" Suenson_taylors's photos around Galapagos Islands, Ecuador [02:38]
A TripAdvisor™ TripWow slideshow of a travel blog to Galapagos Islands, Ecuador by TravelPod blogger Suenson_taylors titled "No hay lugar como Galapagos!" Suenson_taylors's travel blog entry: "Our trip to the Galapagos has been a magical and unforgettable experience. The islands are renowned for the fearless wildlife that roam and swim about but no amount of knowledge can prepare you for the endless encounters with the wildlife here. We are guests in their home -- it's very humbling. We've been snorkelling with sealions, penguins, turtles, sharks, rays and an enormous array of fish. We have been walking amongst iguanas, giant tortoises, flamingos, birds of all species, lava-flows, lagoons and more sealions! The Galapagos is a series of volcanic islands that has not been connected with the continent for millions and millions of years. Almost all the wildlife, both animals and plants, over many hundreds of thousands of years have somehow migrated there and adapted themselves to the Galapagos conditions and become more and more diverse from their continental ancestors. This speciation within the archipelago was recognised by Charles Darwin when he visited the Galapagos on the Beagle in 1835 and his observations then played a substantial part in formulating his theory of evolution -- popularly known as 'The Origin of Species'.

The relaxed Life of mating Giant Tortoises on Santa Cruz Island, Galapagos! [00:33]
Hope you enjoy the videos of our trip to the paradise of the Galapagos Islands. Truly the best destination to choose when going to Ecuador. We choose to spend some days on Santa Cruz Island do-it-yourself style and afterwards going on a cruise to visit the beauty of the Southern Islands of the Galapagos: Plaza Sur, Santa Fe, Espanola and San Cristobal. The first days we enjoyed Tortuga Bay and the tourist life of Puerto Ayora. Also we took a bay tour around Puerto Ayora and saw the giant Tortoises! On first class yacht Galapagos Voyager (highly recommended) we first visited the Charles Darwin Research Station to get more insight in their conversation work. After that we saw rich birdlife everywhere: Frigate Birds and Boobies (Blue-Footed and Nazca). Sea Lions greeting us everywhere and on the first islands plenty of Marine and Land Iguanas! Santa Fe and Espanola Islands also have a rich marine life: Reef Sharks, Spotted Eagle Rays and Sea Turtles everywhere.
