Escape to the Galapagos

The Galapagos Islands lay over 600 miles off the coast of South America and yet they are now more accessible than ever. This secluded volcanic archipelago is home to unique animals that have evolved to survive their unusual environment, such as the blue-footed boobies, marine iguanas, giant tortoises and flightless cormorants. One of the most exciting aspects of the wildlife is their lack of fear towards humanity. Close encounters are a regular occurrence!

The famous Charles Darwin explored these islands on the HMS Beagle in the 19th century and now you can follow his footsteps in style. The La Pinta luxury yacht has 4-day, 5-day and 8-day voyages year-round that explore the various corners of the Galapagos – there is no bad time of year to visit this region of the world! There are also hotels on the islands that offer day boat trips and you can even split your stay between a yacht and a hotel. Hiking, snorkeling and kayaking are some of the exploratory activities you can do in the islands and no visit is complete without a stop into the Charles Darwin Research Station. No matter how you choose to experience the Galapagos, you are get in touch with Holly to start planning your future adventure!

Our travels started back in March of 2020. Our trip started and included a great week in Tahiti then New Zealand. Although that’s when Covid exploded while we were there in Tahiti. That’s when we found out they had closed the border into NZ. Thankfully we had Esplanade to get us back home. We finally got back on track to New Zealand this March. We had a full itinerary planned. When we arrived, we had a driver waiting for us to take us to our Glamorous hotel with a great view of Queenstown, Lake Wakatipu and the Mountains in the background. We traveled to Milford Sound by bus then traveled thru out the scenic Milford Sound. Then they flew us back to our hotel. Another trip was on a Steamboat that took us to Farm. We had a great dinner there and tour of the farm that included the sheep dogs working the sheep. We could go on and on about this trip. The people from NZ our super nice. This trip was great from start to finish. Truly a bucket list trip. Esplanade will definitely be our choice for international travel, without a doubt. <br />
