How to Choose Your Galapagos Cruise

The Galapagos is one of the most loved destinations in South America and for a good reason. This isolated group of volcanic islands is not only famous for its outstanding beauty, but also, for its incredible, but fragile ecosystem. Since the islands are highly protected and extremely remote, the best way to visit the Galapagos is on a cruise. We know that some people would feel tempted to go on a solo excursion, but a cruise does bring you a few perks; you will be guided to the best spots in the Galapagos while experiencing an awesome adventure that comes with all the comforts of a ship.

While on your cruise you can expect to have the most delicious food, wake up to a luxurious onboard experience, be able to do lots of water activities, have encounters with incredible wildlife, enjoy conversations with expert guides (who will happily answer all of your questions), and last but not least - have the possibility to visit far more sites than you could on your own.

Latin Routes works with the best Galapagos Cruise operators and offers an exciting range of Galapagos Cruises. All of the ships are specially designed (or adapted) for exploring the islands always with the aim of bringing you as close to the wildlife as you can get. Each Galapagos Cruise also offers its daily programme of shore landings, Zodiac boat rides, wildlife observation and lectures from experts, so that you can immerse yourself in this wonderful destination.

So, which cruise should you choose? What about the ship? What is a day in the Galapagos like? Should you bring your children? What other things shouldn't you forget? Continue reading and you will find out!
