Both the Amazon Rainforest and the Galapagos Islands are dream vacation destinations, high-up on travelers' Bucket Lists. The Amazon Rainforest is one of the most biodiverse areas on Earth, home to an astounding array of flora, mammals, birdlife, invertebrates and marine species, much of it entirely endemic to the region. The rainforest covers almost 40% of South America and extends into 9 countries. It is also home to one of the largest river systems in the world, the Amazon River. The Galapagos Islands on the other hand, make up a paradise archipelago for any nature lover. These Ecuadorian Islands offer some of the rarest animal sightings in the world amidst a gorgeous background of volcanic landscapes and glimmering blue waters. Read on below to see your options. If you can't decide between the two destinations, why not Combine an Amazon Cruise with a Galapagos Tour.

When planning a Galapagos cruise for your family, it is important to note that not every cruise will accept children on the ship. Make sure you check with the cruise operator before you book with regards to their minimum age requirements. That being said, once aboard a family-friendly cruise, your kids will surely have a blast. The complete ecosystem of the Galapagos Islands is like a science and history lesson in one, but a lot more fun. Kids can take part in a number of water activities, including kayaking, swimming and snorkeling for the older kids. On these activities they are likely to experience close-up encounters with animals they have never seen before, especially not in the wild, including sea turtles and sea lions.
