We absolutely loved the Galapagos. Even now, many months and adventures later, we love looking back on our photos of the Galapagos Islands and remembering what an incredible time we had. Whilst it’s pretty expensive as backpacking destinations go, and not exactly the easiest place to reach, I’d recommend it to any travellers who love nature and wildlife.
The following is a typed-up version of some very quick diary notes I took while travelling the Galapagos Islands. For a more sensible representation of what the Galapagos Islands are like please see Sarah’s post – The Ultimate Guide to Backpacking in the Galapagos.
We were lucky enough to spend 1o days exploring the Galapagos Islands in October this year, and whilst its not typically renowned as a cheap travel destination, as we found out – it’s definitely possible to enjoy the islands on a backpacker budget.
