The Galápagos Islands is one of this world’s top tourist destinations. Every year, hundreds of thousands of people flock to this island archipelago off the coast of South America to enjoy the beautiful vistas, interact with the diverse and amazing wildlife, and to scuba dive and snorkel in one of the world’s richest marine environments. The Galápagos Islands are truly one of this world’s greatest treasures and something that everyone should see in their lifetime.
If you aren’t a regular follower of our blog, we would like to say welcome! Hopefully everyone is having a fantastic start to 2018. For those who haven’t read our post on our travel plans for 2018, we are in the early stages of planning a trip to Peru and Ecuador this year to visit Machu Picchu and the Galapagos Islands. As promised, we are going to share with you some of our travel planning process with this trip.
When traveling, it is important to have your carry-on bag organized so that you have what you need to make it thru a long flight. To help you make sure you aren’t forgetting anything important, we’ve put together this list that you can use.
If you were following along with your own trip in mind, you should have a compiled list of all of the things your group would like to see, ranked in order of what your group would like to see the most, and a map with all of these places laid out on it. If you haven’t done that yet, I suggest you go back and do that before reading this article any further. It will be awfully difficult to start planning the “how”, or the logistics, of your trip if you don’t yet know what you want to see and where those things are.
