What Galapagos Excursions and Activities do you prefer?
For your Galapagos Excursions, decide if you want to see the Galapagos by motoring between islands and living on a boat. Or would you prefer staying on one or two islands and taking day excursions? You can do some of each; we did both.

I like to be no more than a short walk to the beach (whether within a resort or just across the street) to swim, snorkel, dive, or watch the sun dancing on the water — I can’t think of a better way to spend a winter.
For me the best place to find the Unique Nature of Northern Curacao is in Westpunt and areas immediately south have many naturally beautiful areas to hike, snorkel, dive and Continue reading →
