I just won a trip to the Galapagos Islands - any advice?
As you may know, I enter every contest known to man. I listed some of my winnings in an earlier post. I saw a contest on Facebook last week that was open only to residents of around thirty or forty counties in the U.S. I wasn't eligible to enter, but my son and daughter, who attend college in California, were eligible. I e-mailed them and told them to enter and explained that, because it wasn't advertised and it was available to very few people, it was probably the easiest contest that I've ever seen in all of my years of entering contests. Anyway, to make a long story short, my son called me a little while ago and told me that he had won the contest, TWO ROUNDTRIP TICKETS TO THE GALAPAGOS ISLANDS, which means that I'm going with him!
We don't know all the details yet, but we may choose to fly into the Galapagos and out of a different location, if possible.
Since I've never been to the Galapagos Islands, I would like some advice from the many knowledgeable community members here. Is May a good time to go? Any recommendations on where to stay? Which cruise company do you recommend? How long should we go for? Any information would be much appreciated.
