The Perfect Day
For your perfect day, start with a morning scuba dive or snorkel for those who aren’t certified. The beautiful thing about Galapagos is that you can see abundant wildlife in relatively shallow water. Don’t be surprised if you see a reef shark swim by you (don’t worry, they’re harmless) above colorful fish and maybe sea lions too.
Enjoy a hearty lunch then gear up for adventure number two: kayaking. Check out the stunning Galapagos coastline and, if you’re lucky, you’ll spot a blue-footed booby or two.
Freshen up before you head out to dinner at Midori Sushi & Pub where you’ll savor delicious sushi and seafood offerings, while sipping cocktails to toast your perfect day at sea.
A lifetime of memories await you and your family at one of the most unique places on Earth: Galapagos. Your whole family will be completely fascinated by the giant tortoises Galapagos is famous for, so make your first stop of the day at El Chato Ranch.
Dive into some Eduadorian cuisine for lunch (try the ceviche!) then move onto your next stop—sea lions! Almost everywhere you look on San Cristobál and Española, you’ll find sea lions sunning themselves or bobbing along by the dozens on some beaches. Although you can’t approach them, they may come relatively close to you. Have your camera ready for some instaworthy selfies with the sea lions in the background.
Start your day with a hike to Isla Bartolome–one of the most scenic views of Galapagos from a volcanic islet just off the coast of one of the larger islands. It’s a little strenuous from the 300 plus stairs to the summit but totally worth the breathtaking views. On your way up, you’ll see wildlife like frigatebirds, blue-footed boobies, iguanas and Sally Lightfoot crabs.
For lunch pick one of the secluded sand beaches and enjoy some local fare from one of the beach shacks.
Save room for a romantic dinner at Finch Bay Hotel, one of the best fine dining spots in all of Galapagos, and then take a barefoot walk along the beach with your favorite person under more stars than you can see at home.
