The Galapagos Islands are a group of volcanic islands found off the coast of Ecuador in South America. Some of the most interesting animals and plants can be found on these islands. The climate is subtropical, with warm temperatures year-round and heavy rainfall from December to June.
They have been a World Heritage Site since 1979 and there are strict rules about what you can do whilst visiting. Visiting the Galapagos Islands should be high on everyone's bucket list as it is a truly unique experience to see such a variety of wildlife in its natural habitat. Once you arrive at the islands, expect to see howler monkeys huddled together under trees, blue footed boobies dancing in the air, sea lions sunbathing on the rocks and much more.
