Best activities to do in Galapagos
The Galapagos Islands are famous for their unique plants and animals that created their own species on the way. Because of the lack of predators the animals could evolve to their own kind. For instance, the Galapagos penguin is not like any other penguin. The Galapagos penguin has a full black head in contrast to the other penguins.
The amazing animals and the stunning view is not the only reason everybody should go to the wonderful Galapagos Islands. There are also many activities to do, especially on the Islands Isabela, Santa Cruz and Baltra. These are the best activities to do in the Galapagos Islands.
