THE ISLANDS

The Galapagos Archipelago, or Province of Galapagos, is made up of 13 islands, 16 islets and 47 rocks, covering an area of 3,029 square miles, with a total population of nearly 10,000 residents. Their total isolation from the continental mass, due to their volcanic origin, has allowed unique ecosystems to flourish with special fauna and flora.
