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.

... So I just laid on boat. Seemed to be sensitive to noise and guy working on boat was so loud. Second dive was awesome! Saw soooo many hammerheads! Loved it! Also eels, garden eels, rays. Was so cool as really wanted to see hammerheads. Was gutted when had no air left! Was quite a current and wavey so quite hard to get back to and onto the boat. Then we had lunch then came back. Was annoying as woman's camera ...
... weigh anchor and return to Santa Cruz Island to visit Cerro Dragon (Dragon Hill). This is inland and there is no breeze, very hot. We pass the marine iguanas in the lagoon and head up Cerro Dragon - named because it is shaped like a dragon. It is also the nesting place of land iguanas. After a very hot and rocky hike we are all very happy to get back on board for a cold ...
... a strange sensation to be swimming a few feet away from 6 foot sharks but our guide informed us they are harmless though he did advise us to stay five metres away from any large male sea lions. The snorkelling was absolutely brilliant as we saw sharks, plenty of tropical fish and even three penguins. Generally keeping to the western islands containing colder currents, penguins are rare to be seen on Pinzon so we were lucky. At one point a sea ...
... land tortoises in the highlands of Santa Cruz. so instead of catching a $2 bus to town we got a $18 taxi and asked if they could stop at the tortoises en-route. The man who we initially spoke to about this said 'yes, yes' as did the actual driver. However after being driven directly to town, we realised the driver had no idea what he was agreeing to, didn't speak a word of English and was simply just saying yes! Feeling annoyed that we had paid so much for the taxi and knowing we ...
Why is it when we are down 'it's another day tomorrow' or 'the world keeps spinning'...but when we are up....'there aren't enough hours in the day'....how come Yoga has become the must do Saturday morning activity to focus our energy...but the moment we walk out the door it's all about fast tracking success, love, knowledge and experiences hoping that if we all run fast enough on the hamster wheel, maybe group force will eventually get us control of the ...
