We’ve all heard the theory of Evolution many times — but how many people can say they’ve learned about it in the exact spot of its origin? The Galápagos Islands, where Darwin journeyed in 1835 to discover his famous theory, are renowned for their biodiversity, beautiful scenery, and timeless legends. The Galápagos Islands are a World Heritage Site, meaning that the United Nations has deemed them of special worth because of their physical beauty and cultural significance. Their contribution to science and our understanding of the world is unparalleled; the plethora of species they inhabit is unique; and the activity they offer is enjoyable for everyone.
The rich educational experience that presents itself first hand in the Galápagos is a once in a lifetime must-see opportunity. The natural and historic sites that the Galápagos offers cannot be found anywhere else, and are definitely worth exploration. A journey to the Scientific Charles Darwin Station in Puerto Ayora, where scientists research conservation of the unique Galápagos ecosystems, will leave you curious and enlightened.
Vacations can be a great break from routine and work — but that doesn’t mean they shouldn’t be active, engaging, and educational as well. The Galápagos Islands is a destination for people who desire something more than just relaxation in a holiday. Leaving with a purpose, an enlightened view, and a broadening of horizons is exactly what the Galápagos Islands offers. It is a rare feat that you can see urban cities next to natural volcanoes. From zip-lining, Jeep rides, and raft rides to swimming with sea lions, visiting ecological reserves, and lava tunnels, the Galápagos Islands promises to never leave you feeling restless.
However, the excess of activities that offer themselves in the Galápagos are not to compensate for a lack of scenery; in fact, the opposite! You can explore beautiful and unique sites at the “Avenue of the Volcanoes” in Banos City and architectural viewpoints at Quito City’s 17th century cathedral, to name a few. On scenic walking tours, you can also enjoy diverse wildlife; the Galápagos is where Darwin discovered the land iguana and the giant tortoise, two rare but exciting species.
