Setting sail from San Diego

Laid-back, friendly and blessed with near-perfect weather all year round, San Diego is one of America's most likeable cities. Enjoy a stroll through Balboa Park, dotted with beautiful Spanish Renaissance-style architecture, take a whale watching trip along the coast, or sample the nightlife of the trendy Gaslamp Quarter. The swells of Mission Beach and Pacific Beach attract a surfer crowd, while the Old Town has a strong Hispanic influence thanks to the city's proximity to the Mexican border. There are also plenty of family-friendly attractions, including Legoland, SeaWorld and the famous San Diego Zoo.

Don't miss

Spend time in the historic Gaslamp Quarter, and stop off at one of the rooftop bars for excellent views. Then to Balboa Park – one of the best in the world.

Arriving in Guayaquil

Guayaquil is Ecuador's largest city and most important commercial centre, and acts as the gateway to the Pacific coast and the wildlife haven of the Galapagos Islands. It's a busy, buzzing sort of place, centred around the pleasant riverfront Malecón promenade, where you'll find some great restaurants and the impressive Museum of Anthropology and Contemporary Art. The historic district of La Peña is home to pretty, brightly coloured colonial architecture, and the city also has some nice parks and green spaces, so there is enough to warrant spending a day or two here before or after a Galapagos cruise.

Our tip

If you are flying to the Galapagos, use the hotel proposed by the Galapagos cruise company, as they will then take care of all the arrangements.
