I’m Traveling to the Galapagos!

Posted in: Galapagos Islands, Living in Ecuador, Traveling Kids

Woohoo!!!!!! As you read this, I am sitting at the airport with my parents. Today, we are flying from Cuenca to Guayaquil to Baltra Island, Galapagos.

We land on Baltra Island at 12 noon and we should be at the Lodge on Santa Cruz around 1pm.

Because my parents run the blog for Red Mangrove (I help), they will be getting lots of photos and videos of the islands, the excursions, and the animals. And on April 6th they are going to do a draw for the Baby Giants Contest. This is named for the baby giant tortoises that are on the Islands this time of year.

This will be my third time going to the Galapagos!!! 😀

Lots of Galapagos Posts

While I’m there them, I’ll be taking photos for the Galapagos for Kids Series that I write for Red Mangrove.

Because we are traveling with Red Mangrove Lodges we’ll be staying at their luxurious lodges on three different islands. I am super exited!

Galapagos is like the ultimate place to go!! Check out my past posts on Galapagos.

I think that animals are my favorite part of the Galapagos. I love how comfortable they are around people.

Happy travels!

    Yes, Galapagos does have unique flora and fauna. I visited in the late ’80s and would love to bring my kids someday.

    Another thing exciting to try is mountain climbing. My brother-in-law took us sunday to a site close to Pifo on route to Papallacta.
    The whoie family tried it!

    Have fun,
