Ecuador Galápagos Itinerary

The most amazing thing about Ecuador is its diversity, with volcanoes, rainforest and coast just a few hours away from each other. The jewel in Ecuador's crown is the Galápagos Islands, some 770 miles off the Pacific mainland. With unique wildlife, stunning scenery and laid-back vibes, the Islands are in a league of their own!
