Are you thinking about visiting the Galapagos Islands?


If your answer is yes, you should decide which travel option is the best for you and the experiences that you expect to have.

There is the cruising option that we have been talking through this post, and it was perfectly portrayed on Cruise Travel Magazine. There is also the option of organizing a Land Based Tour in Galapagos, ideal for those travelers that would like either extend their cruise experience by staying some days in one of the main inhabited islands of the archipelago or staying in a hotel and do the activities that they want when they want. But, beware that one of the cons of this last trip option is that you cannot visit the far interesting sites of the islands, such as Genovesa Island or Tagus Cove.
