World's Best Islands: Galápagos, Ecuador

Adam Vaught / GeoEx

No. 7 Galápagos, Ecuador

Blue-footed boobies, short-feathered penguins, and marine iguanas lure travelers to these islands 600 miles west of Ecuador. When you’re ready to make the trip, consider an outfitter like Geo Expeditions, whose naturalist-led tours combine island hopping on a 16-passenger catamaran with a stay in a tented camp on a 135-acre farm atop Santa Cruz Island. It’s the ideal approach, enabling you to view the fascinating array of land and sea creatures that call the storied Galápagos home.
