Visit a giant tortoise in the Galápagos Islands
If getting up close and personal with nature is on your honeymoon bucket list, then head to the Galápagos Islands. Located off the coast of Ecuador, these islands are filled to the brim with wildlife, including giant tortoises, seals, blue-footed boobies, penguins, and more. And, because there are no natural predators living on the islands, these local animals are happy to greet human visitors. While visiting, most people try to book a tour of Santa Cruz Island as it’s home to Ecuador’s Galápagos National Park. For those willing to splurge, the Finch Bay Hotel has all the luxury you crave. Guests can lounge by the pool, swim on its private stretch of beach, or board the hotel’s private yacht for a tour of the islands.
