The Galapagos were born from volcanoes erupting violently out of the sea. Plant and animal species traversed 1000km of ocean to colonize the islands, leaving species isolated and evolving independently on different islands. Observing this had a resounding impact on the formations of Darwin's Theory of Natural Selection and the theory of evolution by natural selection.
Even though the Galapagos is on the Equator and is on the sea level, the climate on the Galapagos is not tropical. The Galapagos Geology makes the major islands have their own climate change, for example in Santa Cruz Island on the sea level it can be hot and sunny, and on the highlands can be cold and windy.
Most visitors to the Galapagos fly into Quito and plan activities and tours on Ecuador's mainland. Wildlife lovers flock to the many lodges of the Amazon region and explore Mindo, the Avenue of the Volcanoes and Baños. History buffs explore colonial haciendas and city centers of Cuenca and Quito.
