I remember when I first learned about the Galapagos Islands. I was in High School and we were studying evolution and natural selection.

Galapagos Cruises Intineraries:

Each island of Galapagos is a world apart; the flora and the fauna differ incredibly from island to island, close in distance but an entirely unique ecosystem apart.

This variety is what makes the Galapagos such an once-in-a-lifetime experience, but at the same time this very same diversity is what can make it difficult to choose an itinerary that's right for you, as often the itineraries don't include all the islands you were hoping to see.
