Have you ever thought about seeing a part of the world that is about 4 million years old? What about seeing the distinguished giant tortoises and marine iguanas or adventuring with Charles Darwin? If so, travel roughly 600 miles west of Ecuador’s mainland in South America and you enter one of the world’s most dynamic volcanic areas, the Galapagos Islands of Ecuador. The Galapagos consists of approximately 14 volcanic islands of which certain islands are still in the process of making their formations, while the most aged islands of the Galapagos are over 4 million years old.
