Authentic South American Experiences For Your Clients

The Galapagos are one of the new wonders of the world, also known for being the place where Charles Darwin formulated his revolutionary Theory of Evolution.

The first recorded visit to the Archipielago happened by accident, as with many wonders of the world. A happy accident, since we know them now as the home of unique ecosystems and stunning landscapes. The scenery ranges from cacti filled islands alive with the presence of pinchers, to rock formations in the middle of the sea, where you can dive and share the ocean for a moment with penguins, turtles, sharks and dolphins, while guarded by a giant sleeping lion who emerges like a sphynx in the vast pacific.


The Galapagos Islands are one of the most biologically diverse places on earth. This archipelago of islands is located 972 kilometers off the coast of Ecuador and it’s perhaps most famous for being the place where Charles Darwin first formulated his revolutionary theory of evolution.

It is not by chance that they’re also called The Enchanted Islands. A visit to the Galápagos Islands is a real once-in-a-lifetime experience and one of the highlights of any visit to South America.

 North Seymour Island

North Seymour island was named after an English noble named Lord Hugh Seymour, and was formed by the elevation of submarine lava. The entire island is covered with low, dense vegetation and has a trail for visitors that crosses the island and allows you to explore the rocky coast. There is a large population of blue-footed boobies and swallow-tailed gulls in this island, as well as land iguanas (Conolophus subcristatus), which are not native but migrated to the  island. Numerous frigate birds and sea lions.

South Plaza Island

Formed from lava erupting from the ocean ground, this island, ehile small in size, is big on the concentration of Flora and Fauna it offers. Depending on the season you visit you will find a rocky coast filled with bright green vegetation during the rainy season, or an orange-purple filled coast. 

Academy Bay – La Lobería

Tintoreras Islet

Los Túneles

Los Tuneles is one of the best places for surface diving because its waters are calm and clear. This is a unique site thanks to its wonderful geological formations. Since the lava flows have formed a large number of arches and tunnels, inside and outside the water, several species of the marine fauna of the Enchanted Islands are sheltered here.

Kicker Rock

Kicker Rock or Lobos Island is a small and flat islet, which can be reached by boat from San Cristobal. The islet is named this way as it is home to colonies of sea lions that play on the beaches and rest on the rocks as their brown fur stands out on the white sand. In addition, it is the ideal place to observe nesting frigate birds and blue footed boobies. Don’t miss out on snorkelling alongside sea lions and sea turtles!

The Highlands

The Wall of Tears

 Several saltwater lagoons and the largest concentration of flamingos in the Galapagos, decorate the way to a historic site, where history and myth come together.
The Wall of Tears is about 25 metres (65 feet) high and caused thousands of deaths during its construction. The locals call it the ´wall of tears´, since according to the local myth, it is said that “creepy screams emanate” and it has a “heavy energy that surrounds it”.

Best times to

practical information


The only way to get to the Galápagos Islands is by plane, flying in from the mainland of Ecuador. There are multiple daily flights to the Galápagos Islands leaving from Quito and Guayaquil. Flights arrive at airports located on Isla Baltra or Isla San Cristóbal and are operated by Avianca and LATAM.


Transportation in Galapagos is an easy matter. In Santa Cruz, you will find particular and private buses, and in all habited islands there are taxi cabs (more pick-up trucks than actual cabs), and riding a bicycle to get you where you want to go is always a fun option too.

To hop from island to island there’s also no lack of boats that depart to all the habited islands you want to reach, and a wide variety of particular boats and cruises that can take you on cruises. We just have to warn you that it might get bumpy; and a rainjacket and hat are always good company.



Galapagos islands offer a wide range of hotels to stay and also cruise ships that vary in size, capacity, and services available. Every type of traveler is sure to find something to their liking. It all depends on your budget, the islands and places you want to visit, and whether you get seasick or not!

The islands gastronomy also offers a wide range of choices. You can find many upscale restaurants, but the meals at the local market are also not to be left aside! We especially recommend their empanadas for a quick and budget friendly pick-me-up. Bon appetit!
