Have you ever thought about going to the Galapagos Islands? How ‘bout this fall?
Here’s the deal. Oksana and I will very likely be passing through Ecuador around October or November and I can’t imagine not taking her out to that amazing archipelago. Unfortunately, it’s going to be way outside our budget of $100/day. The rest of Ecuador is quite inexpensive, so we might just settle down for awhile and save up for the trip, but I’m hoping we can find another way…
When I was there in January, our group paid for a seven-day tour of the islands. For the entire week, our home was the 78’ motor yacht, Floreana. There’s room for 16 passengers (8 rooms), and everything from an English-speaking naturalist guide to three meals a day was provided. Our itinerary generally consisted of two land excursions and two snorkeling excursions every day, with a couple of nights out on the towns (Puerto Ayora and San Cristóbal.) Although there were only five people in our group, we quickly bonded all the other tourists and had a fantastic time!
Every time I bring up my trip to the Galapagos, someone says, “Oh, I’d love to go there someday.” It gets me thinking. How hard would it be to fill the Floreana with friends and family?
This is me, inviting you to join us on a Galapagos trip!
Let’s discuss the details a bit:
