As always, you are sad when a good trip comes to the end. Our time in the Galapagos has been a beautiful experience, and I already can't wait to come back again in the near future! I will be doing a complete write- up of my adventures soon!
Our beautiful boutique hotel is located on the island of Santa Cruz - one of the most beautiful (and accessible islands) in the Galapagos. We enjoyed a delicious breakfast at the hotel before meeting our guide for a journey through the highlands of the island. At our boutique hotel we have many giant Tortoises, but [...]
