The Galápagos

“I’d love to see turtles, sea lions, birds, and other wildlife.” —Dana Reynolds, former flight attendant, 40

We turned to Eric Sheets of Latin Excursions, whose top pick for animal viewing is the westernmost island of Isabela, home to 70 percent of the area’s endemic wildlife. You can swim with penguins, visit a tortoise-breeding center, snorkel with gentle sharks, and spot a variety of seabirds. Sheets can put together itineraries combining land stays and cruises (from $3,500 per person per week).
