The Galapagos Islands are a "bucket list" destination--part adventure, part natural laboratory and 100 percent fun.
Our partner institution at University of San Francisco Quito has a campus on San Cristobal Island, where we spent three days.

View from the study hall. What a place to take a few classes!
A staple of high school biology and ecology courses, the Galapagos is perhaps best known for some theory some guy came up with a long, long time ago...

Playa Brava near campus. Many of the beaches tend to be volcanic and rocky but there are some very nice ones.
I love snorkeling! Care to join me!
Many tourists stay on the boats rather than lodging on the island which has impacts on the community
