If you’re a climber that’s visiting Ecuador, the Chimborazo Volcano is one that you can’t miss! The Chimborazo’s claim to fame is that it’s peak is the world’s furthest point from the earth’s center. I know what you’re thinking. Everest is the highest mountain, everyone knows that. That’s partly true – measured from sea level, Everest is the highest mountain… but it’s not the closest to the sun. This is because the shape of the earth isn’t a perfect sphere. It actually bulges towards the middle (like many of us do). This means that the top of the Chimborazo is well over a mile further away from the earth’s center than Mount Everest! You literally will not find a point higher than the peak of the Chimborazo volcano.

There is nothing that I love more than exploring the rainforest in South America. I've done it in several different countries, and it is never a letdown for the adventurous. I've chased caiman, caught piranhas, slept in hammocks and tripped over anacondas. Those were some of the happiest moments in my life. Most people, though, are probably looking for something a little... milder. If you want to explore the Amazon rainforest with more comfort (while not missing out on nature), then a river cruise in Ecuador is probably exactly what you're looking for.

Quito is the capital of Ecuador, and it's a massive city with roughly two and a half million people. It has a large international airport, and more than likely this is where you'll enter the country. So is it worth it to spend a few days in Quito before heading out to explore the rest of the country? Yes! Aside from being a major hub of activity, this large city is packed with beautiful parks and other attractions. It's historical district was the first (along with Kraków, Poland) to be declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site (1978). There are tons of really outstanding monuments, buildings and sculptures that display rich culture and history.

You're planning a trip to the Galapagos and you don't want to be the one that has to do the "unpack of shame" at the airport. How do you pack light and make sure your clothes match the weather?

Read on, though, for detailed and specific information on exactly the kind of clothing that will let you pack light and be as comfortable as possible in the Galapagos Islands!

When most people from North America think of South America, they think of hot, balmy weather. And, for the most part, this is true! South America is home to the Amazon, some genuinely amazing beaches, and even some hot, arid savannas. But what can you expect in Machu Picchu, Peru? It's located in the Andean mountain range, where the weather is notoriously brisk! Actually, Machu Picchu is located in an area where weather can be hard to predict - at around 8,000 feet above sea level, it's between the steamy Amazon and the chilly city of Cusco. Some say that within a single day, you can get all four seasons - complete with cold rain, warm sunshine, chilly wind, and even snow!

Let’s face it – cruises are awesome. Even if they’re just a few days, they’re memorable for years, and well worth all the desktop background pictures at work! When it comes to choosing an actual cruise, though, there are tons of destinations to choose from. Does it matter where you go? Yes. Different cruise destinations offer totally different experiences. You could hardly find more of a contrast between the eco-friendly Galapagos and the glamorous Caribbean.

There are 21 volcanoes in the Galapagos Islands that emerge from the ocean and form the Archipelago. Of these, 13 volcanoes are active! Ever since Charles Darwin showed up here in 1835, there have been over 60 recorded eruptions on 6 of the volcanoes. Many people are fascinated by how such a delicate ecosystem - complete with its own micro climate - exists in such a volatile place! Historically, the critically endangered wildlife of the Galapagos has always been on the brink of destruction. 
Bugs in Galapagos Header
by on May 18, 2018
When some people think of the equator, they think of the Amazon Rainforest, with spiders the size of your hand and mosquitoes more vicious than an African lion. It's a reasonable question to ask. What about bugs in the Galapagos? Most people find that biting insects in the Galapagos are actually pretty minimal, and that some natural bug repellent works very well to avoid any bites. Of course, bugs come and go with the seasons, so read on for some pro tips to avoid itchiness in an environmentally friendly way!
