30th Birthday treat to Galapagos

Jump to last reply

I've decided that for my 30th, I'd like to go someplace I've always wanted and between Madagascar and the Galapagos, the Galap wins.

Can someone help guide me? I was on the website gapadventures.com and there are so many different prices, lengths of time, etc.

My priorities are to see lots of wildlife, hike and snorkel a bit. I prefer not to remain too long in one place and would like to avoid cities. I'm not picky about the boat being standard or custom or luxury - it just needs to weather the seas and not contain cockeroaches.

I also can't spend a fortune. I work for a non-profit museum so you can imagine that I need to start saving now. 1,500-3,000 would be okay. Total.

Precious advice??
Sarah
