The islands’ moon like landscapes of mist-covered volcanic peaks, red sand beaches, and strange forests of prickly pear cactus are full of prehistoric looking iguanas, giant tortoises, doe-eyed sea lions playing with you while you snorkel, vividly pink flamingoes, blue-footed boobies performing their "sky pointing" dance, and hunting penguins swimming around your legs.

Why travel with other women?
Many women do not have families or compatible friends who wish to travel. When going on a main-stream tour, women often find that most activities are geared towards couples and quite often they feel left out. Singles' tours are not always what women are looking for. If you do not have a traveling companion, there is also the issue of the expensive "single supplement", sometimes as much as 50 or even 100 percent of the tour cost. By going on women-only tours, women can easily avoid paying for the single supplement by sharing a room with another woman traveler.
