If biology class were this much fun, we wouldn’t need summer vacation. The world’s greatest cage-less zoo, this volcanic archipelago teems with wild things your kids won’t see anywhere outside of science textbooks and the Discovery Channel. Lizards that swim? Cormorants that don’t fly? Natural selection sure is selective, huh? The sea lions and lava lizards get close enough to touch (but we won’t—nature is best appreciated from a respectful distance), and our expert naturalists will be at the ready to field any and all questions. Snorkelling, kayaking and swimming off the Isabela II’s back deck? You can’t top this lesson plan. The best part? The kids will be having so much fun they’ll forget it’s all educational.
