Walking in Darwin's Footsteps

Today was monumental in the lives of two biology teachers and twelve passionate students as we were able to walk in the footsteps of Charles Darwin. We grabbed a quick breakfast at 3:30 a.m. and traveled to the Quito Airport, where we experienced a one-hour delay. Students made the most of their time by playing games, drawing, journaling and …

Snorkelling in the Galápagos Islands!

... sand flies, these little buggers really hurt!!! It became common place for us to shriek and dive under water to avoid them as they attacked us in 3's or 4's!!!! Little buggers. After shrieking and running away from the mangroves we had to swim back to the boat. This was a pretty big swim however, we made it back and jumped on the boat. A little bit sad to leave this beautiful place. When we got back on the boat, we had discovered that the crew had dismantled the tuna to give ...

... massive shoals of fish and made another sea lion friend thanks to our interaction expertise we had acquired the day before. Soon the big girl was following us - and what was perhaps even more special than the day before was that she swam with us, diving down and doing flips, rather than just staying in a little shallow bay. She was some swimmer. We all had great fun trying to keep up with her, Ali especially enjoyed trying to use his new free diving skills swimming deep alongside ...

... were also some pink flamingoes resting in the lagoon. The mosquitoes here were vicious so lots of repellant to keep them hovering. Back to the boat for a cocktail and to watch a lovely sunset. No rain but lots of cloud today which was probably good for us. The humidity is always high and the temperature is in the high 20's night and day. Our last night on the boat so an early start tomorrow to do one more activity then on to the plane back to the ...

    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.
