People say Galapagos Islands are a MUST for everyone at least once in their life - and they are right! This gorgeous group of Islands is rich in History, Science and FULL of Endemic flora and fauna.
Darwin, who spent a few weeks on these islands when he was travelling as a young man on the HMS Beagle in 1835, discovered so many different species that had been untouched by man he based his 'novel' the origin of species on it. (that he wrote 25 years later) This of course became the staple ingredient in the theory and development of evolution.
Science and research is in constant motion here at the many centers
Unfortunately we did not have 'enough' time to explore this marvelous place, but in 4 days we got a great taste and got to swim with turtles bigger than us, see hammerheads, giant iguanas, many different birds, flowers, trees and hike around one of the biggest volcano craters in the world.
Magical? Hell Yeah!
