The Galapagos islands, situated roughly 600 miles west of the coast of Ecuador, are home to over 50 volcanic islands spread out over 2,700 square miles as well as many fascinating animals and birds, including sea lions, blue-footed boobies and the remarkable Galapagos Penguin.
You can travel to Galapagos year-round. During the winter months (November through March), Galapagos’ weather is perfect, with average temperatures in the 80s and 90s. During the cool water season (April through October), temperatures are still pleasant with highs in the 70s. The cooler months also coincide with breeding season, making it the perfect time to visit.
There are several ways to see the Galapagos, but we recommend visiting by cruise. A seven-night cruise will give you a chance to explore up to six islands, and there are a variety of options to choose from, from basic accommodations to mega yachts. We highly recommend Celebrity Cruises’ Xpedition, which comes with all the shore excursions and comfort you will want. For additional cruise information, visit us at Benoic.com.
Before or after your cruise, don’t pass up the opportunity to stop in Machu Picchu, set high in the Andes Mountains of Per. Built-in the 15th century and later abandoned, it is a renowned historic mystery.
Add a stop in the bustling metropolis of Lima, Peru for museums, archaeological sites, beaches, valleys, natural reserves, nightlife, the thrill of adventure sports, and exquisite cuisine.
