Why Space City travels to interesting places
By Rita Cardenas, VP Trips
I want to highlight one of our trips which is a bucket list trip for me…..The Galapagos Adventure. Let me give you a quick summary of the Galápagos Islands, located roughly 600 miles off the coast of Ecuador. Sometime in the 1800s, some swashbuckling pirates and intrepid explorers started arriving in the Galápagos Islands. Without the influence of a human presence, the island's flora and fauna, and the surrounding marine life, thrived for thousands of years by evolving into unique species you won't find anywhere else in the world, such as the charismatic giant tortoises and blue-footed boobies. Beyond seeing the main stars of the island, many visitors also enjoy the beautiful beaches There's no bad time to visit the Galápagos Islands. No matter what time of year you go, the adventure is sure to be unique and wonderful. June through December are the cooler and drier months. Our trip is a land-based tour, you'll take a comfortable chartered boat to visit a multitude of stunning islands. On the boat ride, you’ll enjoy the views and some unscheduled snorkeling stops, making the most of what’s out and about that day! Each night, you’ll return to your hotel, where you can spend your free time absorbing the local culture, enjoying the local cuisine, walking on a pristine beach, or exploring the local plants and wildlife. We still have openings for The Galapagos Adventure, consult with Beverly Roberts, TC for additional information.
Did you know that Travel+Leasure’s destination of the year is Costa Rica! Space City is going to Costa Rica in April, the trip is full, contact Sorrell Warren to be put on the waitlist. Costa Rica literally translates to "rich coast,” and it’s easy to see how it got its name. In addition to world-class beaches on both the Caribbean and Pacific, this peaceful paradise boasts some of the most bio-diverse ecosystems on Earth. In fact, scientists say five percent of the world's species are found here. For reference, the country is only as big as West Virginia.
Speaking of interesting places, Pat Piech and I are in the beginning stages of planning the 2025 travel season. We will be researching some exciting trips such as a cruise to Japan, Bike & Boat trip to Croatia and perhaps a ski trip to Quebec.
Stay tuned for updates.
