    Visiting the Galapagos was beyond fun with the kids. We ruled out a cruise as we'd be paying for a bunch of excursions we wouldn't be sure to use. Instead we took it at our pace on Santa Cruz and Isabela islands. Flew into Baltra (GPS), then a bus, to a ferry to a bus and we were in Puerta Ayora. Long travel day.

    highlights: turtles, sea lions, sharks, marine iguanas and rays from the town pier with a great playground right there, swimming with marine iguanas on Isabela. Nature hike on North Seymour Island to see blue footed boobies (chuckle) and frigate birds doing their thing. Restaurants: Isla Bar and TJ's (the coconut fish was awesome), seeing the great efforts underway at the tortoise breeding center on Isabela. Seeing a manta ray and baby hammerhead shark while snorkeling. My wife had sea lions and sea turtles in her grill while diving.

    lowlights: Drake Inn on Isabela where we walked in to our room with the safe open with a strange key, the cleaning lady in the same room, and some of our cash seemingly skimmed (wish I could prove). We checked out early and the owner wouldn't refund our unused days and accused us of "an elaborate hoax". Was dealing with this on my son's 5th birthday. Hate.

    Next stop was Medellin Colombia. Some friends had a great time there last year and we wanted a place to eat good food and chill with the kids. We stayed in Laureles district and really enjoyed our time there. Realized that Colombia has a lot to offer, almost everything we wanted to see/do in central and south America were doable there, apart from Patagonia I guess

    Highlights: Cheap stay and food, good restaurants and variety especially In Situ for upscale and Naan for Indian, Café de la Cima coffee tour, Parque Explora kids museum, gondolas for public transport were cool, communa 13 graffiti tour to hear about the unspeakable violence the city has lived through, amazing local fruit

    Lowlights: Copa airlines unhelpful as hell on a tight connection (Avianca has been way better overall), playgrounds not great for the kids, Parque Arvi requires you to hike with a guide which was kinda lame, luggage double checked at airport on the way in for drugs, I still can't understand when a native speaker talks to me, ugh!

    Thanks Kokomas for the Croc bridge tip. We parked on the side of the road on the south side of the bridge where 2 policeman were standing. Crocs were out. I didn't tell my family why we had stopped. They sure were surprised when they saw the crocs.

    Nice work Goniff! There was some chatter earlier that a guy sold chickens there to drop off the bridge. I didn't see any of that
