This is a place where sea lions show off their swimming skills and blue-footed boobies perform their elegant two-step mating dance right under your nose. The archipelago is located in the Pacific Ocean 600 miles, or 965 km, off the Ecuadorian mainland. Its wonders include impressive geological formations, old and new outcrops, various types of cones and tunnels formed by underground streams and currents.
