To the islands we go!

by Chris December. 30, 2008 1225 views

After a nice breakfast at the hotel of freshly squeeze orange juice and a ham and cheese sandwich, we collected our bags and headed back to the airport to catch our flight to the Galapagos Islands. The flight took around 1.5 hours and soon enough we were descending upon beautiful blue-green water that surrounds the island of San Cristobal.

We were greeted by our tour guide and were whisked off to our hotel which was located near the waters edge. We had the afternoon free to explore and do whatever we wanted, so we made our way to a nearby beach, Playa Man. The beach was full of a group of sea lions and a few marine iguanas and we spent the afternoon enjoying the water, sun, and wildlife.

That evening we walked along the waterfront and indulged in a dinner of delicious seafood before hanging out at the hotel.
