I think you heard about the Galapagos Islands. This is one of the best archipelagoes of volcanic islands situated surrounding the equator. This is located 965 km west of the continental equator in the Pacific Ocean. The total area is part of Equator’s national park. This is really a geologically superb area for traveling to Ecuador and getting fun that you never get anywhere else in the world.
The Galapagos Islands are included in the UNESCO World Heritage Site. Diversified wildlife is the main attraction of these islands. The total area consists of an Ecuadorian province, a national park, and a biological marine reserve. Spanish is the dominant language on the islands and 23,000 people live in the islands.
Geologically the islands are well-known for their huge number of endemic species. The biodiversity of these islands was studied by Charles Darwin during the voyage of the Beagle. His explanation and collections contributed to the initiation of Darwin’s theory of evolution by natural selection.
