We are thinking of the Galapagos Islands for an exotic and adventurous vacation! I'm planning a stay there right now and I was looking for tips - I saw other posts and was about to ask but I noticed that some were going of topic to I started a new one! :P
Anyway, my friend lives on the coast of Ecuador and I will also stay there, he says there's plenty of little b&bs and homes to rent and small cheap hotels. As for me, I plan on trying to get a good deal on diving cruises or small cruise ship to explore as much as the nature of the islands as I can. It is still to decide if it will be just two adults or if the young teen comes along - any thought on that is appreciated. I have found heaps of info - but mostly on diving - on this site http://galapagos-liveaboard.com/astrea were I saw the boat I think we would take if we are only 2 adults, and so it doesn't cost an arm and a leg!
If going with our son, we think of a small ship cruises so it's more nature activities and not so focused on diving. Good idea?
Otherwise, those who have paid cheaper and stayed on islands, do you feel like you have missed some nature sightings ?
Can't wait to read what more people have to say about Ec uador while I pllan! Have a good good time!
