The article features the Galapagos Islands, located 625 miles off the coast of Ecuador. It is a pricey choice of destination due to its far-flung position and limited visitor numbers. Visitors can have the opportunity to walk among giant tortoises, scuba dive surrounded by sea lions, or swim with the only equatorial penguins in the world. The island is a year-round destination and there is always something to see at different times of year.
