Horseback riding in EcuadorThe Galapagos Archipelago features beautiful and mostly cloudless skies during most parts of the year. The Galapagos Islands are located on the Pacific Ocean, about 600 miles west of the Ecuadorian coast, away from the lights of the large cities. In the Galapagos, you are far away from the lights' reflections from the skies of the big cities. This is an excellent way to enjoy the dazzling display from the bright stars, as they dance with terrific brilliance across the Islands' magical night sky.
