Unesco declared the Galpagos Island a World Natural Heritage this archipelago is unique and one of the wonders of world.
Biodiversity thrived in a territory of volcanic material that emerged frm the deep waters of the Pacific Ocean millions of years ago. Comorants forgot to fly, iguanas learned to swim, turtles became gigantic, and sharks mild. This is a place where sea lions show off their swimming skills and blue-footed boobies perform their elegant two-step mating dance right under your nose. The archipelago is located in the Pacific Ocean 600 miles, or 965 km, off the Ecuadorian mainland. Its wonders include impressive geological formations, old and new outcrops, various types of cones and tunnels formed by underground streams and currents.
White, red and black sand beacheswith extraordinary landscapes highlight the diversity of life itself. This is where Charles Darwin was inspired to draw up his theory on evolution and the origin of species.
