End your vacation with a drive through the “Avenue of the Volcanoes” to Cotopaxi National Park with one of the highest active volcanoes of the same name rising above you. End your trip of a lifetime with a 3-night cruise through the Galápagos Islands on the Galápagos Legend. Your time in the archipelago introduces you to species of animals that do not exist anywhere else on the planet! From blue-footed boobies, magnificent frigate birds, and Darwin’s finches to giant tortoises, sea lions, and iguanas, the wildlife here is prolific. Your time here will definitely not disappoint!
