Our sail through the Galapagos Islands was highlighted by travelling as Charles Darwin would have in the 1800's. We sailed on the Mary Anne for seven days and nights, island hoping, snorkeling, diving, hiking accompanied by a naturalist who gave us the history and science...More

This area has cool water and very strong currents. We saw whale shark, hammerheads, black tips, sea lions, manta rays, eagle rays, etc. Lots of fun but you need to be confident in your abilities to dive, navigate and return.

Stayed at a quaint hotel in the islands but I'll have to research to remember name. Ecuador itself seems to be an armpit at least the city of quaquil . the islands were a totally different story totally worth the visit.
