8˙ Take a trip to Isabela and snorkel in and around underwater lava tunnels˙

9˙ Be sure to take cash out before going to Isabela˙ There are no ATMS˙ Actually, be sure to get cash from the mainland˙ The ATM’s on the Galapagos Islands charge $6 per transaction˙ And, you can only withdraw $300 at a time˙

10˙ Snorkel and get a sneak peak at the resting White-tipped Reef sharks˙

11˙ Try corviche! It’s an amazing Ecuadorian dish made (ok, this is going to sound weird), it’s made with plantains, tuna fish, peanuts, tomato & cilantro˙ I know, it sounds crazy, but you have to try it˙ Preferably on San Cristobal˙
