"Isabela and a Wicked Volcano" Claraz8's photos around Isabela, Ecuador [02:38]
A TripAdvisor™ TripWow slideshow of a travel blog to Isabela, Ecuador by TravelPod blogger Claraz8 titled "Isabela and a Wicked Volcano" Claraz8's travel blog entry: "Today we had breakfast at the hotel and then rode another bumpy boat ride to our next destination, Isabella Island. It took about 2 ½ hours, again by small boat with two large motors.. Isabella Island only has about 2300 inhabitants, and it feels really exotic. As we came in we saw Pinguinos (Penguins) sitting atop black lava rock, and old fishing boats. The town itself is on the beach and all the roads are wide, made of hard packed dirt. They sprayed our hands with disinfectant again when we got off the boat and as always checked all our bags. We arrived to a quaint little hotel and then met right away for our last day of snorkeling. I have to say though, it was the best! A Panga (water taxi) took us to the first part of our day, which was a hike through the black lava to where the tiburons (sharks) rest before they go out to sea and start feeding. The landscape was gorgeous with the black lava rocks, green mangrove and aqua sea all around. When we got to where the sharks were it was incredible. There must have been about 10 white-tip sharks circling in a narrow little channel right below us. Sea iguanas covered the walls so that when you got close the wall seemed to come alive; red crabs scrabbled their way along near the waters edge. We took video and pictures but I don't think anything could do it ...

"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'. Lying on the equator 970km west of the Ecuadorean coast the Galapagos consists of 6 main islands, 12 smaller islands and over 40 islets. Nowadays the ...
