The magical Galapagos Islands, off the coast of Ecuador, near the equator, is one of the most beautiful places I have been. The eyes of the wildlife look straight into yours and the birds, penguins, sea lions, land and sea turtles, land and sea iguana, lizards, have no fear of humans...you must be accompanied by a certified naturalist to enter this protected place. Hopefully, the wildlife will still control these islands for many years to come.
