I lived in Ecuador for two years, and have been to the Galapagos quite a few times. If you like the area you should check out la Isla de la Plata. They call it the poor mans galapagos because it has most of the same animals as the galapagos but it isn’t as touristy/expensive. They also offer super cheap scuba diving classes there (think $300/one week instruction + PADI cert.). Love your blog and good luck in your travels!
