Comment on What To Expect On An Ecuador Amazon Tour With La Selva Lodge by Charles Kosman https://www.thebarefootnomad.com/south-america/what-to-expect-on-an-ecuador-amazon-tour-with-la-selva-lodge/#comment-49369 Fri, 08 Jun 2018 18:14:11 +0000 https://www.thebarefootnomad.com/?p=13774#comment-49369 Hi Gabrielle, we did both trips and had a great time doing it. The biggest costs for us were getting to Ecuador in the first place. Though I will admit that visiting the Galapagos cheaply isn’t easy. Most people go with a set itinerary so they know their costs beforehand.

If you like La Selva, the owners of La Selva Ecolodge own a few boats that operate in the Galapagos Islands as well as they recently bought The Red Mangrove in Santa Cruz. You can check out The Red Mangrove site here. We actually stayed at The Red Mangrove ourselves however that was before it was bought out. You can read about our Red Mangrove experience in Santa Cruz here though I imagine that place has just gotten better since La Selva bought it.

You can check out the La Selva Galapagos cruises here. They also provide Amazon and Galapagos combined trips here which might be what you’re after.

It’s not hard to book your own flights online as well as book your own hotel or cruise with whichever company you prefer however if you don’t want to book it all yourself you can contact La Selva directly and they can help out or you can contact pretty much any decent travel agent in Ecuador or abroad and they should be able to set you up for a small fee. Safe travels!

Comment on The DIY Guide to Snorkeling with Endangered Sea Turtles in Akumal Mexico by Charles Kosman https://www.thebarefootnomad.com/mexico/the-diy-guide-to-snorkeling-with-endangered-sea-turtles-in-akumal-mexico/#comment-49368 Fri, 08 Jun 2018 18:02:12 +0000 https://www.thebarefootnomad.com/?p=4612#comment-49368 Hi Bianca, it definitely seems things have changed in Akumal. It’s probably for the better that they’re enforcing tighter regulations on the area since there are just so many sea turtles in Akumal and should be protected. Hopefully the new setup helps the turtles rather than just filling the locals pockets. Only time will tell and we’ll definitely check it out ourselves next time we’re down there.

Comment on What To Do With Your Vehicle When You Travel by Ken Hwan https://www.thebarefootnomad.com/travel-tips/what-to-do-with-your-vehicle-when-you-travel/#comment-49366 Fri, 08 Jun 2018 16:49:35 +0000 https://www.thebarefootnomad.com/?p=5039#comment-49366 I was very surpsrised to learn how affordable storage insurance can be for storing vehicles. I am planning a trip for this weekend with my wife and recently bought a new truck, so I wasn’t sure how I would be able to keep my truck in a good condition while I was gone. I will be sure to look into storage insurance as an option for keeping my new truck in its pristine condition!

I really like the idea to wear workout clothes that are designed to keep you cool, I never knew workout clothes were designed to do that! I will be sure to buy some workout clothes soon so I can stay cool for our hike!

Now it is a protected area and snorkeling by yourself can be done in specific spots. Don’t worry you can hire a certified guide that will escort you thorugh the circuits and show you the turtles. Akumal Dive Shop, Akumal Dive Center and Piratas offer this service.
