Galapagos Islands, Honeymoon Destination
July 8th, 2011
The Galapagos Islands draw thousands of visitors every year, including scientists, students, naturalists, photographers and more. The Galapagos Islands' status as a must-see, “bucket list” sort of destination also draws in retirees and off-the beaten path travelers.
While the Islands are often overlooked by the “in-between” crowd of people in their 20’s and 30’s, the Galapagos Islands actually make for an outstanding honeymoon destination. Why pick Galapagos for your honeymoon? Here are five reasons:
The Galapagos Islands are Romantic
- Moonlit cruises? Check.
- Exotic location? Check.
- Excellent facilities and service? Check.
- ...and Check.
The dramatic sunsets, fearless wildlife and memorable landscapes combine with first-rate services to create the perfect atmosphere for romance.
The Galapagos Islands have something for everyone.
He wants hiking, she wants a beach. He wants water sports, she wants shopping. Galapagos is about not having to sacrifice or compromise.
There are great beaches and hikes on the islands, as well as snorkeling and other water sports. The towns on the islands have a surprising amount of quality souvenirs from all over Ecuador and South America. You can even decide between land-based and cruise ship tours. Why fight over a destination when Galapagos has it all?
The Galapagos is a destination for the young and vibrant.
The Islands are on many people’s “bucketlist” of places to visit. Many retirees go to Galapagos because they finally have the time and money to do so. Unfortunately, by the time they get there, many seniors find that some of the hikes and islands are too challenging for them andthey miss out.
The Galapagos Islands are more affordable than you think.
Many young couples are not yet established and may avoid seemingly pricey destinations like the Galapagos Islands.
Although the costs are undeniable – airfare to and from Ecuador and then to the Galapagos, plus park fees and the cost of cruises or lodging – they are relatively low right now. The worldwide economic downturn has had one positive effect: fewer people are visiting Galapagos and the tour companies and hotels are willing to make deals they would not have considered before.
Ecuador has much more to offer than just the Galapagos Islands.
A honeymoon to the Galapagos Islands carries the side benefit of a trip to Ecuador. Why not spend a few days relaxing in the natural spas of Papallacta surrounded by the Andes, or taking a romantic carriage ride in Quito’s charming colonial center?
For such a small nation, Ecuador is home to a wonderfully diverse ecosystem with everything from snow-capped volcanoes to sandy beaches.
