About Galapagos Islands

Approximately 1000 kilometers (621 miles) offshore from Guayaquil is the Columbus's Archipelago, home to Galapagos National Park which is one of the most attractive sites in Ecuador and a habitat for giant turtles, prehistoric iguanas and a variety of other unique species.

The area is covered in heavy vegetation and consists of a series of 13 large volcanic islands, 6 smaller islands and 107 rocks and islets. For many, it's a slice of paradise with natural attractions of extraordinary beauty like gorgeous white-sand beaches, lava tunnels and fauna and flora that are unique to the area. In fact, the islands were declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site and have been nicknamed "the Enchanted Isles".
