Galapagos Islands

The Galapagos Islands are a part of Ecuador. They are located in the Pacific Ocean approximately a thousand kilometers from South America. Galapagos Islands arose from the bottom of the ocean in form of astounding volcanic disturbances.

The archipelago comprises of a total of nineteen islands (six small and 13 large) and dozens of rocks and islets that cover a small area of a vast region that extends 45,000 square kilometers. Lots of things make these islands a must visit, and we’ll discuss them all in detail in the subsequent section.

The weather in Galapagos, for starters, is excellent all year round. There are usually two seasons in Galapagos: the Dry and Hot season.
