For someone who does not really enjoy beaches, the Galapagos Islands in Ecuador have the most unique beaches in the world, featuring the most diverse wildlife with a great range of activities. For someone who prefers land over boat, these islands can be difficult to navigate so I highly recommend going with a tour group; I went with G-Adventures (a.k.a. Gap Adventures) Camping Tour, which surpassed my expectations. The guide was an outgoing local and naturalist meaning he got us all the connections and activities while being our field expert, a one-stop shop. In addition, I was able to meet 15 other new friends from all around the world. My total spent was $3000 which is about the cost of a cheap tour or cruise from any other company alone. Quito is cheap but the Galapagos prices were on par with that in the US. This was one of the most fun experience I would say due to the location and company. Some of us got sick, probably due to food and the 2-3 hour speedboat rides against current between each island but everyone made it out …alive.
