Traveling to Galapagos Ecuador Islands

When it comes to traveling I don’t like to go the cheap way, because where I stay, what I eat and what I do matters for my well-being and mental satisfaction. So, this time I am in the Galápagos Islands in Ecuador. You have to stay here for several days (10 days is my minimum, definitely)  to get to experience the most exciting tropical weather where downpours and water temperatures are at their peak at this time of the year.

One of my multiple passions in life is scuba diving, and these tropical waters are the house of the twenty percent of the marine life found in the whole wold: Tijeretas Hill is a Galápagos dive site off of San Cristobal Island. It offers great visibility, and it’s also a perfect dive site even for beginners. Be sure to bring your camera if you are into underwater photography because you will find many photo opportunities here.

This wall dive features green sea turtles, Galápagos garden eels, rays, and great schools of fish, including angelfish and grunts. The best part of this dive, though, is being able to swim with the playful Sea Lions, who are attracted by the bubbles you make.

    I love your travel photos Martha (as much as the food posts). My boss went on a Galapagos Islands cruise about four years ago and was sending me pictures from his phone the entire time. I was fascinated with the lushness of this tropical paradise and those huge turtles as well.

    • Thank you linda. It is gorgeous here, indeed. The beauty of nature and the kindness of the locals makes me really happy.
