Honeymooners who visit the Galapagos Islands are certainly drawn by the island's vast wildlife, in addition to its sand and surf. But those considering a trip to the island should consider one very basic question: to cruise or not to cruise?
Cruises are popular in the Galapagos because one ship can easily hit all of the hotspots in a short amount of time, and travelers will be able to see all they want to. Couples might enjoy the amenities of cruises, but some newlyweds will prefer a less touristy adventure with more privacy.
According to the Seattle Post-Intelligencer, not cruising is a viable option as well. There are many private homes and hotels on the island that will offer accommodations to those on their honeymoon. While travelers will have to arrange private boats and planes to get around the islands, the news source reveals that the cost of all this is often a cheaper option than booking a full cruise.
In addition to the normal beaches and sun offered by islands, the Galapagos is famous for its contributions to the theory of evolution. It was these islands where Charles Darwin first formed his revolutionary explanations, and one of the reasons is the Galapagos' huge variety of animal life. Travelers will be able to see all sorts of birds, sea lions, penguins, iguanas and the famous Galapagos tortoises. It's the perfect trip for the couple that loves wildlife.
