A trip to the Galapagos is the definition of a “trip of a lifetime.”
The Ecuadorian islands are remote, largely undeveloped, and wild. You have to really want to visit.
I recently got back from 5 days in the Galapagos and like to describe my trip as a “sea safari” — or the ocean equivalent of an African safari. Here, it’s all about the animals!
Sure there’ll be land-based excursions, but you’re always taking a boat from one island to another, and jumping in the ocean to snorkel and experience the sea life (just take a look at the photos below and you’ll see what I mean).
I’ll be writing more about my time in the Galapagos soon, including writing a Hotel Report about my stay at the Galapagos’ only 5-star hotel, Pikaia Lodge. But for now, enjoy the photos below — they’re just a few of my favorites. You can see more on my Instagram and in the article Business Inside wrote about my trip.
