The Galapagos Islands
The Galapagos Islands are a volcanic string of islands.
These islands are in the Pacific Ocean, about 1000 km or 600 miles off Ecuador’s coast, and on the northernmost tip of South America. This archipelago consists of thirteen main islands, nine minor islands, six hundred ocean rocks, and thirty-nine islets.
This island cluster hosts a variety of fascinating fauna only found on these islands.
Around three or five million years ago, a volcanic eruption created an under-the-sea mountain range. The molten lava formed several islands, most of which were peaks of underground volcanoes. Diverse flora and fauna thrive there to this day.
The islands are teeming with wildlife, lava lizards, marine and land iguanas, flightless cormorants, etc., just the tip of the iceberg.
You can scuba dive and snorkel while swimming with sea lions and enjoying spectacular sea life, such as turtles, sea lions, or whale sharks. You can go sea kayaking or volcano hiking and enjoy the breathtaking views and unique plant life with more than 500 species.
Ecuador straddles the equator on South America’s west coast. Its breathtaking landscape includes:
- The Andean highlands.
- The Amazon jungle.
- The beaches on the Pacific coast.
- The spectacular Galapagos Islands.
The Andes highlands’ foothills nestle the capital Quito at an elevation of 2,850m above sea level. Quito is famous for its almost intact Spanish colonial center.
There are tons to do in Ecuador, and you cannot exhaust everything in a single visit.
The Amazon jungle is massive, and you may have to come back several times to finish exploring its sheer beauty, flora, and fauna. Banos de Agua Santa is the second most visited destination after Quito and is renowned for its spas and hot springs.
Some things to do include:
- Trekking the Andean highlands
- Rafting and kayaking in the confluence of the Andes highlands and the Amazon jungle
- Hiking in the lagoons, volcanic craters, pristine beaches, collapsed volcanoes, and the Amazon forest.
- Mountain biking is a favorite with Ecuadorians and visitors wishing to explore the off-the-beaten trails
- Mountaineering the Andean region, which has breathtaking snow-capped volcanoes and rocky mountains
It’s almost impossible not to visit Ecuador and not visit the Galapagos Islands. Ecuador and the islands are entwined, with the rich diversity of the Galapagos flora and fauna the most unique in the world.
