Galápagos Islands and Quito

Visiting only the Galápagos Islands and skipping the rest of Ecuador seems a shame, especially now that the mainland has several world-class hotels. The itinerary below combines my favorite properties in the country into an enviable vacation incorporating vastly different natural environments as well as some appealing urban attractions like museums, churches and art galleries in Quito.
