Spend five days exploring the GalÁpagos Islands aboard the Yolita and enjoy the beaches, history, and wildlife of the central and southern islands. When you want to spend some time underwater, make sure to check out the Devil’s Crown in Floreana, a snorkeller’s paradise and home to some of the most impressive marine life in the GalÁpagos. Bird lovers will have their hands full, too, with stops at some pretty notable bird-watching spots on Cerro DragÓn. When you’re done connecting with the wildlife, get over to Post Office Bay to learn about its history and, of course, to drop off a postcard.
