“The love for all living creatures is the most noble attribute of man.” Charles Darwin 1835
Join Jeni Martinez, yoga lifer, and avid traveler, and Jose Valdivieso, Galapagos Naturalist Guide, for this adventure of a lifetime. Hike, swim, snorkel, practice yoga and learn about the many unique species that live in the Galapagos.
The Galapagos Islands are an enchanted archipelago of volcanic islands off the coast of Ecuador in the Pacific Ocean. Considered one of the world’s most unique and amazing destinations for viewing a diverse species of plants and wildlife, many of which are only found in the Galapagos.
Charles Darwin’s visit to the Galapagos in 1835 is said to have later inspired his theory of evolution: “It is not the strongest of the species that survives. Nor the most intelligent that survives. It is the one that is most adaptable to change.”
Giant tortoises on Isabela, blue-footed boobies nesting on North Seymour, pelicans flying over the beach on Floreana, marine iguanas everywhere, and sea lions resting on benches in Santa Cruz. An exceptional experience with an abundance of protected wildlife and a natural landscape, unlike any other place in the world.
Jose, a lifelong resident of the Galapagos says, “My mission is to help people travel responsibly and respectfully to the Galapagos Islands and connect them with high-quality local service providers. By choosing this retreat, you are also supporting our reforestation initiative to offset the carbon footprint as well as our plastic coastal cleaning initiative to help preserve our ocean. I created my travel company because I believe tourism can be a force for good and positively impact the local community, the environment, and its natural habitat. “
