Galapagos Islands: There’s a reason Charles Darwin chose this island chain to conduct his studies. This renowned archipelago of volcanic islands hugs the equator from both sides and is full of all sorts of unique animal life. You can follow in the footsteps of the famous scientist on land or in the sea when you add the Galapagos Islands to your next vacation

Get up close and personal with a volcano on one of the many guided tours. You can walk along the edge of the Sierra Negra caldera through the low-lying scruff and grass. Look out across the caldera, which stretches like a black lake as far as the eye can see. This is only one of the many volcanoes you can explore in the Galapagos Islands. Channel your inner Indiana Jones and go exploring.

A visit to the Charles Darwin Research Station will give you great insight into the breeding and conservation of giant tortoises. These gentle giants grow to over 500 lbs and 6 feet long. You can see other creatures at the research stations, such as iguanas and snakes. Watch your step, though, they don’t stick to “designated areas.” Stop in at the research station to learn about conservation efforts and the unique biodiversity in the islands.
