This incredible nine-day journey introduces you to the remarkable Galápagos Islands, a nature lover’s dream destination and UNESCO World Heritage site, with a four-night cruise aboard the first-class small ship m.v. Santa Cruz. This exploration vessel is fully equipped with everything necessary to make your Galápagos experience complete, from a fleet of Zodiacs and a glass-bottom boat to a highly qualified team of certified naturalists and complimentary snorkeling gear. Visit seven islands and see the exotic birds, animals and plants that inspired Charles Darwin, including species unknown elsewhere in the world. With few natural predators on the islands, the abundant wildlife is nearly fearless and accepts human company up-close. You can almost touch spiny-backed iguanas and snorkel alongside tropical penguins and playful seals. On mainland Ecuador, enjoy deluxe hotel accommodations in Quito and Guayaquil. See the magnificent colonial churches of Quito, a UNESCO World Heritage site, and join an optional excursion to the colorful Andean market of Otavalo.
