The Enchanted Islands, one of the most renowned destinations in the world offer a one of a kind nature experience.
Picture yourself walking amongst giant turtles, sea lions and exotic birds or swimming alongside whale sharks and giant manta rays who have no fear of man and are just as curious about you as you are about them. This unique opportunity is only possible in the Galapagos Islands. Located 1.000 kilometers (600 miles) off the Ecuadorian Pacific Coast, the islands are a living museum and showcase of evolution. Declared a Natural World Heritage Site by UNESCO in 1979, the Galapagos have also been recognized as the first destination to visit before you die by the readers of USA TODAY.
