The Galápagos Islands of Ecuador

The Galápagos Islands

 

A very long journey for us indeed — with Malaysia Airlines A380 from Kuala Lumpur to London, then British Airways B747 from London to Miami, followed by American Airlines B757 to Quito, the capital of Ecuador. The final leg to the Galápagos is by LAN Ecuador A319.

The Galápagos Islands are actually a volcanic archipelago comprising 21 islands, some one thousand kilometres west of the South American continent, in the eastern Pacific Ocean. The main airport is on Baltra Island (1), while we stay in Puerto Ayora (2) on Santa Cruz Island, and in Puerto Villamil (3) on Isabela Island. The distance between Puerto Ayora and Puerto Villamil is 80km, traveling on a fast boat.
