13 larger islands, 5 medium islands, and 215 islets form the archipelago. For its climate and position on the Equator, the Islands can be visited all year around.

For history and for convenience, the traditional way to visit the Galapagos Islands has been by boat or yacht, including an itinerary that explores the national park in different and distant geographical points.

While this method is very attractive, we should not rule out another that started in the early 80s and I reached significant popularity in the 90s: visiting programs from a hotel. There are many visitors who know the human reality of Galapagos, hich borders a population of 28,000 inhabitants, spread over four islands: Santa Cruz (the most populated and most commercial one), San Cristobal (the provincial capital), Isabela (the largest one), and Floreana (the smallest one). In this list we do not include Baltra because it is a military base and the island where the airport operates.

This BEnExpert would provide valuable information to have a precise idea of what it means to visit and enjoy the Galapagos Islands in different travel styles.
