I would like to thank Kimkim and Kristy especially to make our trip a reality. We were booked to travel to Peru in December but had a last minute cancellation due to political unrest in Peru. However, Kristy was able to create our itinerary within a week for Galapagos, Amazon Rainforest and Ecuador that enabled us to keep our travel dates. We spent 4 nights in Galapagos, 3 nights in the Napo Wildlife Center and 4 nights in Quito most of which were due to transit and travel. We visited 2 islands in Galapagos - Santa Cruz and La Isabela. Santa Cruz is populated and had a feel of a touristy beach town, La Isabela was beautiful and remote. Our hotel was right on the beach and we were able to find some time to relax and enjoy the scenery. Most of the days start early at 6 or 6.30am with guided tours or travel logistics between Islands or to and from Quito. Our guides were very proficient about the local wildlife, flora and fauna. Kids enjoyed snorkeling, we toured lava caves apart from visiting the Tortoises, Iguanas and Sea Lions that are in abundance. My favorite part of the vacation was the Napo Wildlife center that required a 2.5hr motor boat ride from Coca to the cultural center and then a 2hr paddle boat ride to the Wildlife center. The hiking in the rainforest, watching caimans, giant otters, macaws, rainforest canopy were an experience of a lifetime. Thanks to all our guides, especially Jose in the Napo wildlife center to make our trip an unforgettable experience!
