detour destinations It wasn't preposterous to wonder if San Cristóbal was unchanged. e Galápagos Islands are a province of Ecuador and 97 percent of the land is protected in a national park established in 1959. Together with the marine reserve that surrounds the islands, the area is the size of the state of New York. Our Choice: Ecoventura Many cruise companies offer trips through the islands, and my husband and I spent quite a bit of time considering the options. We liked that Ecoventura is part of the Relais & Châteaux collection of luxury hotels and restaurants and that their yachts (eory, Origin, and Evolve) each have ten cabins for a maximum of 20 guests per voyage. I was also aware that the national park stipulates a ratio of at least one qualified naturalist guide per 16 passengers, and Ecoventura provides two guides for 20 people. << ranchandcoast.com 70 JANUARY 2023 RANCH & COAST MAGAZINE
