Española island, Galapagos, Ecuador



Just about everyone has heard of them, but have you ever asked the question “Where are Galapagos Islands?”  The Galapagos Islands are 525 miles off the western coast of Ecuador, and therefore are part of the country of Ecuador. Many people believe that a visit to South America is not complete without a visit to this spectacular wildlife sanctuary, famous for the unusual animals of the Galapagos Islands, such as giant tortoises, fur seals, sea lions, land and sea iguanas as well many varied species of birds.  You should be sure to make it part of your Ecuador travel plans as well.

In 1959, these 13 major, and many smaller islands in the Galapagos Archipelago were designated an Ecuadorian national park. The indigenous animals have no natural predators, and so have become fearless, and therefore are carefully protected from the one enemy that could hurt them, man.  Travel to the Galapagos Islands is so easy that more and more visitors go these days, but a wonderful cruise to Galapagos will convince you that nobody should ever harm these ancient reminders of the survival of the species.
