Galapagos Update: The Islands are definitely changing, and will adopt until mid May a true tropical environment. This is the perfect time to enjoy aquatic activities such as snorkeling and scuba diving, and appreciate the fact that the islands are going from arid to humid.
This is something no other tropical location experiences with such intensity as in the Galapagos Islands.
1) Charles Darwin Birthday and Galapagos Anniversary: Charles Darwin was born on February 12, 1809 in Shrewsbury, England. He was 26 when he visited the Galapagos Islands in 1835.
The same day February 12, 1832, the Republic of Ecuador took political possession of the Galapagos Islands located 600 miles off the coast of this country.
