Rated 5 out of 5 by from A great travel resource I chose this book over others because it was solely on the Galapagos Islands (although there is a chapter on Quito and Guayaquil). I've been using it to plan an upcoming trip, and it's turning out to be an invaluable tool. Bearing in mind that this is the first travel book/guide I've used, I think it's excellent and very comprehensive. There's a great break-down on the pros and cons of cruises vs. day trips in the Galapagos, and chapters focusing on each significant region. Things to do, what you can expect to see, and lots of handy tips for travel are included. The photos are beautiful, the maps are useful, and there's even a section on Spanish phrases in the back. I'm sure that all of the information on places to stay and eat, complete with addresses and phone numbers, will be well-used during our stay. Planning a trip to the Galapagos seemed like an arduous task before I started reading this book - now I have a much better sense of what can be done while there, what to expect, and how much things will cost. If you're heading to the Galapagos, especially if you're planning on island-hopping rather than doing a cruise, this book is very handy.
