It’s official, we are traveling to the Galapagos Islands for the first time in our lives. This is a significant trip for us because Aracely has always dreamed of visiting the Galapagos Islands, but we had great trepidation in doing so when we spent over a month in Ecuador back in 2010. We both have discussed our concerns over Galapagos travel and have made the decision to move forward with our exploration.
Exploring the Galapagos Islands is one of those bucket list places to visit. The great Pyramids of Egypt, Easter Island, Uyuni Salt Flats, Taj Mahal, Ancient Rome, and for us nature lovers, the Galapagos Islands. To make it even more significant and memorable, we are going for Aracely’s 30th Birthday. She turns 30 on March 12th, so we need to book the trip immediately.
A Concern for the Environment
As described earlier, we are booking this trip with a little bit of guilt. Excessive tourism and over population from Ecuadorians seeking work, has caused significant harm to the fragile ecosystem of the Galapagos. We would be hypocritical if we didn’t admit our tour will be contributing to that slow destruction of wildlife that surrounds the area.
I promise to examine our tour and provide some insight into what different tour companies are doing to reduce or possibly increase the damage to the ecosystem.
Photos and Videos of Galapagos Islands
On a lighter note, we will also be taking thousands of wildlife photos and lots of HD video! We are extremely excited about our decision and we hope you are looking forward to the colorful, nature pictures to come!
Now we have to seek out an adventurous tour.
