reading before you
travel is always a good idea. For example, before booking
accommodation in the capital city of Ecuador, we would recommend that
you check a city map of Quito.
A good Ecuador guidebook will give you some background
information about the country and its culture. A Galapagos
is not cheap, so check your itinerary on a map of the Galapagos Islands
before you book and make sure your chosen islands are included.
Reading about the dramatic social history of the Galapagos
Islands is recommended, too.
