Galapagos Is A Great Place To Greet The New Year

lizard-2113966_1920-5
The New Year is a fresh start, a perfect time to set the course for the year to come. What better way to do that than cruising the iconic Galapagos Islands, onboard a luxury yacht? January is the perfect time to see green sea turtles nesting, while Espanola's marine iguanas turn a brilliant red to attract mates as the courtship period gets into full swing for marine and the giant land iguanas!  The water is calm and warmer, the holiday crowds have returned home, the world - and year - are reborn!   Really, wouldn't you rather be playing snorkel-tag with sea lions than shoveling snow? Call us today to snag the best cabins! Your friendly Galapagos expert, Sherry

Ceviche a la Galapagos!

Ceviche a la Galapagos!
Almost every country with a coastline has its own version of ceviche. The ingredients might change with availability, but the heart of the recipe - seafood "cooked" or marinated in acidic juices - remains the same. In South America, Ecuador and Peru clash over who has the best ceviche, and I must confess I cannot decide myself! Lima's neighborhood cebicherias could keep me occupied for weeks, checking out another each day. But when I travel to Ecuador , and particularly in the Galapagos Islands, ceviche is one of the culinary treats I crave! This recipe comes to us courtesy of the EcoVentura yachts , whose onboard chefs magically turn out exquisite meals day after day, in a galley about the size of my small apartment's kitchen. If you've never attempted to make your own ceviche, give this one a try! And don't be afraid to play with the ingredients. This recipe...

Guest Video From Ecuador and the Galapagos Islands

Guest Video From Ecuador and the Galapagos Islands
I love my job as Program Director for Ecuador and the Galapagos Islands anyway, but when I begin my Monday morning by opening an email from a just returned traveler and seeing an outstanding video of his family having the time of their lives makes even a not-so-great day fade to the background. Two families, long-time friends, traveling through the Ecuadorian countryside and onto the Galapagos Islands. As Bryan (the videographer) says “I am glad you all enjoyed it. Thanks for arranging the trip, the video was easy to make with all the great footage and good times.” This just puts a giant smile on anyone’s face, it says EVERYTHING about the experience of traveling with your loved ones to very special places on our planet! Check out their video: Galapagos family vacations  are not only an unforgettable experience, but also an incredible learning opportunity for children and adults. Your friendly...
