Galápagos Islands: Don’t wait to see them!

P1320122

The Galápagos Islands are incredible, and should be on everyone’s must see list.

My main piece of advice for visiting Galápagos is don’t wait.  First, the islands are getting more and more popular, which means crowds, rising costs, and perhaps restrictions on the number of foreigners able to visit.

But also don’t wait so long you can’t have the trip that you want.  During my 2 1/2 weeks in the islands, I saw many older travellers who may have waited too long.  It isn’t overly strenuous to see the Galápagos Islands, but you do need to be sure-footed.
