The Galapagos Islands are one of the most beautiful places on earth. A wonderful world to discover, both above and below water. Sharks, hammerheads, turtles and sea lions are easy to spot. And did you know that no less than 20% of all animals on the Galapagos Islands can only be found there? Unfortunately, this island group is a fairly expensive travel destination, but if you are already in South America you are highly recommended to sail accross these islands.
