Where are the Galápagos Islands?
They are located 600 miles off the west coast of the South American country of Ecuador, in the middle of the Pacific Ocean.  We flew from the capital city of Quito along the equator to a small island called Baltra.  There we boarded our ship to begin exploring these amazing islands.
