An archipelago of 21 islands 550 miles (900 km) off the coast of Ecuador, the Galapagos Islands have astounded explorers & visitors for centuries.

Each island offers its unique charm and each one is often home to different animals, plants and scenery.

The largest islands in the Galapagos are Santa Cruz, Santiago, Isabela and San Cristobal. These are also the most populated and are where you can find different restaurants, hotels, shops, and galleries.

We will mention three main islands and some of the surrounding smaller islands to help you plan your Galapagos honeymoon.
