A Galapagos cruise could very well be one of the most memorable times of your life. This little volcanic archipelago in the middle of nowhere has truly one-of-a-kind wildlife and an incredible history. It's one of those rare places where you get that perfect mix of bizarre, incredible, and 100% unique. Combining an amazing place like the Galapagos Islands with a luxury cruise? It doesn't get any better than that. The tricky part is deciding which cruise to go for. There are a lot of vessels that can take you exploring seemingly prehistoric world, all with their own pros and cons.

The Galapagos Islands are amazing on many levels. The climate is remarkably comfortable for being so close to the equator. The islands themselves were formed by presently-active volcanoes that command respect and truly impress. The ocean and beaches are beautiful. Really, though, it's animals that make the visit unforgettable. The Galapagos Islands are home to loads of endemic species. That means that they're not found anywhere else in the world. The animals here are actually extremely comfortable around humans; they haven't developed a fear of being hunted that animals in other areas have. Let's go over some of the highlights of what awesome animals you can expect to see in the Galapagos.

Selfies with giant tortoises, marine iguanas and blue-footed boobies while you're on a trip to the Galapagos are definitely Instagram-worthy. Besides plastering social media with mind-blowing photos of the islands, sometimes you simply need to be in contact with the outside world. So what's the Galapagos cell phone coverage like throughout the archipelago? Cell coverage can be spotty. Generally the populated areas have decent coverage, but the uninhabited islands and open ocean are typically out of range. In this article I'll outline what to expect, and what options you have.

A good hike can be one of the most satisfying ways to really get close to nature. The feeling of accomplishment along with a few amazing views make for a totally memorable vacation. Ecuador does not disappoint when it comes to awesome hikes! Especially in the mountains, there are absolutely breathtaking routes for all levels of hikers. Here are my top 5 places.

Food and travel; one of the most natural pairings of the universe. So with a destination as amazing as the Galapagos Islands, what can you expect to experience for cuisine? In this post we'll go over what's offered on Galapagos cruises - one traveler to another 😁 There's one thing I've learned from my traveling around the world. If you let a great chef cook a meal that he grew up eating, he'll knock it out of the park every time. Ecuador has some amazing dishes that are truly unique to this country. Traditional coastal foods do a great job of showcasing what can come from the ocean. A cruise is quite possibly the best setting to enjoy seafood! Let me introduce you to some traditional Ecuadorian foods that I've absolutely fallen in love with!

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? The short answer is to bring light clothing that is quick drying, layerable, and gives you good coverage from the sun. 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!
