Land Iguana, The Galapagos

The Galapagos: Laboratory of Evolution


The ecosystem of the Galapagos is like no other on the planet. Darwin recognized its uniqueness when we developed his theories on the origin of species. For those lucky enough to make the trip, the experience of not just seeing, but being with the local fauna so close that you have to back away rather than step closer, is one that is hardly found elsewhere. And this whole experience is prefaced by an amazing journey from the capital Quito down the “avenue of the volcanoes” on the mainland itself.

Ever since I was a kid watching Jacques Cousteau episodes on TV, I dreamed of the day I would visit the Galapagos Islands. When I finally got there I felt like I was mesmerized by the nature - and it was all so much bigger than I had imagined. I was most impressed by how much care is paid to preserving this pristine environment from the moment you board the plane on the mainland to actually stepping foot on shore - with no one else around because shore lands are so well organized that no two vessels are at the same place at the same time - a truly remarkable experience.
