Charles Darwin claimed he was in the Galapagos to study evolution. We think he was soaking up the sun, swimming with seal cubs and giggling at blue-footed boobies.

The Galapagos Islands are one of the most hypnotizing places on Earth. It’s nature at its wildest, free-est and brightest.

There aren’t too many destinations where it feels like humans are the visitors and the animals rule the roost. This is their turf and we’re just along for the ride.

It’s the kind of place you can swim with sea lions one day, and take a walk with iguanas the next. You can see blue-footed boobies shake their tail feathers and imagine that Charles Darwin is just around the corner.

The sheer number of creatures, big, small, weird and wild, will Blow. Your. Mind. It’s nature’s playground and it’s spectacular.
