I saw some rating somewhere that weren't happy with Las Ninfas because they only speak in Spanish. My response to that is uhhh...think about where you are. For the majority of the trip, everybody was fantastic. The guides were great for a majority of the time minus a few quirks here and there, of that being when they talk, they talk in spanish so fast that it is difficult to understand. I do not have a problem with the spanish but they could have spoken a bit slower because there were a lot of people from other countries there. That was my only real complaint. The good wasn't bad at all. The accommodations were worth it. The beaches, the atmosphere, the way they take care of you was really well done and thought out. I would have liked to have seen a few more things like more blue footed boobies but when they sent you off to Florena or Isabella or wherever you go, you are on a good boat with a good captain and they make sure you are safe and if you get sick they take care of you as well. It sure beats the hell out of Royal Palm which costs 300$ per night. Get to the Galapagos. You won't regret it.

This month has been super busy despite the fact that it was my first full month of summer vacation.
I started this month with a trip to Montanita with two other American families who live in Salinas. We all took a bus together and spent the day on the beach. While we were there, I had the opportunity to try …
... is the town on Isabela where most people live. It's way less touristy than over on Santa Cruz island and has a very relaxed vibe with no paved roads. This is definitely a good place to relax but also great for doing excursions as well. Anyway, after settling into my hostel, I went to the giant white sand beach that lines the tiny town of Puerto Villamil to watch the sunset and chill out. I don't remember what happened the rest of the night but I'm pretty sure it was fairly ...
... very gregarious and curious as they swam up to our boats, diving under them at times. Also in very shallow waters we spotted many Green Sea Turtles, some of them likely waiting to go ashore at night to lay more eggs. We made a wet landing and took the shortest hike of the cruise, about 70 metres, to see the post office. In the days when whalers were visiting this island, someone left a barrel for mail and visitors would pick up letters to deliver at their home ports. The barrel ...
... more on a subsequent excursion. We also saw a pair of marine iguanas actually swimming, as opposed to basking in the sun. On return to our landing beach we took time to snorkel again, although this time the water was a bit murkier and fewer fish were to be seen. Perhaps after the attack by all the sea birds they had moved on. However it was very refreshing after hot trek. We returned to the ship, refreshed ourselves and had dinner. This was ...
... land, in all different square shapes and sizes, resembling a patchwork quilt. It's not long at all before we spot our next destination from above, and we make our way down into a very inviting looking town, with a large covered,local market, all adorned by a waterfall, at the end of town, with local hot springs, that you can pay a nominal fee for, and spend the day. With the help of Wilson, we secure ourselves a room for the next 2 nights, and we are off ...
