After seven nights cruising the Galpagos Islands aboard the Yolita, you wont want to leave. Travelling between the central, southern and eastern islands, expect days full of activities you really cant experience anywhere else. Share the beautiful white-sand beaches with sea lions, iguanas, and 100-year-old tortoises, hike Punta Pitt and try to find all three distinct species of booby, then take a trip to the Devil’s Crown, a snorkellers paradise. Before you leave, make sure to make a stop at Post Office Bay to drop off a post card, or maybe even bring one home with you.
