Charles Darwin claimed he was here to study evolution. But we reckon he was soaking up some rays, drinking coconuts and swimming with the seal cubs.

The Galapagos Islands are one of the most hypnotizing places on Earth.

True story. It’s nature at its wildest, free-est and brightest. There are not 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 might be 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.
