National Geographic Endeavor II | Aboard the Galapagos Cruise Ship (Boat Tour)

Top Places to Travel in 2019 Series

The Galapagos Islands is well-known for its animals that brought us to the world we live in today. Charles Darwin’s study of its animals led to his theory of natural selection, but did he ever imagine that people would travel from all over the globe just to see the land he walked on to make these discoveries?

Today, there are several ships and boats that take travelers for a glimpse of the Galapagos islands, whether it’s for the tortoises, the sea lions or the blue-footed boobies. For this trip, we took the National Geographic Endeavor II.

National Geographic has partnered with Lindblad Expeditions, and together, they give curious adventurers the chance to explore wonderful locations such as the Galapagos. They not only give travelers these amazing opportunities, but they also create itineraries for different levels of activities while educating their passengers and helping the environment all at the same time.

The Galapagos is a magical place where those wishing to visit must educate themselves in all things Galapagos. We explored the Galapagos with National Geographic aboard one of their cruises on the Endeavor II.

On this cruise, there were many educated people who knew a lot about the Galapagos as well as trained photographers who were available to teach us their ways.

The ship moves quickly throughout the Galapagos, moving passengers from one island to the next with minimal difficulty.

Mixquic, Mexico: Celebrate Day of the Dead Like the Movie, Coco!

Top Places to Travel in 2019 Series


The movie Coco gained a lot of attention when it first premiered. It’s portrayal of the Mexican holiday, Dia De Los Muertos, had viewers curious as to whether a holiday like that could be so brilliant.

Lucky for those viewers, the holiday is exactly as it’s portrayed in the movie. What is this strange holiday that covers the streets with orange flowers?

Mexico is popularly known for a lot of things: their tacos, their mezcal, and their love for the dead. The Day of the Dead, or Dia de Los Muertos, is a commemoration of those who have passed away, where locals head to the cemeteries, decorate the gravesites, drink in honor of their loved ones, and provide offerings that the dead enjoyed in their life.


Celebrations start on October 31st and continue on to November 2nd, the Day of the Dead. Every Dia de Los Muertos is full of color, full of emotion, and much bigger than one would expect, just like in the movie, Coco.

Remembering the dead in Mexico will be an unforgettable experience, but if you’re in Mexico City, the exact location that inspired the cemetery scenes of Coco can be found in San Andres Mixquic.
