The best Ecuador tour usually consists of a trip to the exotic Galapagos Islands. Of course, this is something you wouldn’t want to miss during your vacation, practically because this is where the real life is. The Galapagos are more than just the site of Darwin’s study of the evolution; it is home to Ecuador’s most vivid wildlife, deep set waters and simply enchanting rainforests.
But when exactly should you take an Ecuador vacation in order to enjoy the Galapagos? The islands are still a boat ride away from the mainland, and you will be braving the waters of the Caribbean in order to get to the shore.
Probably the best time to visit the Galapagos Islands is during the summer. The waters are calmer, the winds are softer, and the tides are easier to handle. There are also less sea storms to face en route to the islands and upon arriving you will be able to better enjoy the flora and fauna present on land.
When visiting the Galapagos, you should be ready to stay in makeshift tents and not in a fancy hotel. There are only a few people living in the islands, and most of them are stationed to maintain of the wildlife preserves. If you want, you may bring your own tent so you can camp out in the shore; you can actually rent one in the mainland for less hassle.
Of course, don’t forget to bring your camera during your trip. Taking shots of the wildlife can give you more than just memories of your vacation, but also you get to capture what life is at its purest form.
