At first glance, the Galapagos Islands may not seem like your typical paradise given the very rugged terrain that covers the majority of the islands. However past this hard exterior, you will find some of the most incredible biodiversity in the world (and at least a few sandy beaches in Tortuga Bay on the island of Santa Cruz). Awe-inspiring and magnificent, the islands are home to creatures that take you back to a prehistoric time and instil you with a sense of wonder for nature you may not have felt before. In fact, you will definitely develop a new appreciation for the creativity of the earth. Dotted amongst this is also small villages, whose people are warm, friendly and welcoming to all who pass through; happy to share their fresh and delicious seafood.
Volunteering in the Galapagos will give you the chance to volunteer with the world famous giant tortoises and help out with sea turtle conservation whilst enjoying the splendour of these stunning islands.
