Galapagos Islands, Ecuador

Travelers flock to the Galapagos Islands to ogle the region's one-of-a-kind wildlife, which differs from one island to the next. To see the full menagerie, hop on a boat. Lindblad Expeditions, Celebrity Cruises and Metropolitan Touring are just a few of the companies ferrying passengers to places like Rabida, where flamingos frequently feed; Fernandina, with its large colony of marine iguanas; and Espanola, home to the world's only waved albatross colony. And don't forget the amazing wildlife under the sea. Live-aboard boat companies (such as Aggressor and Buddy Dive) take divers to the northern islands of Darwin and Wolf to swim among hammerhead sharks, green and hawksbill turtles, sea lions, rays, and fur seals.
