There are many Galapagos Islands map that you can find on Google and then clicking on images. I used this method to figure out my way around while sitting on my computer. It helped when trying to located each of the sites that I wanted to visit. I even went as far and drew my own map and then wrote each of the locations on it. Then I wrote out the amount of time that it would take to visit each one. (Half Day or Whole Day) After doing this then I was able to determine how many days that I needed to stay on each Island. This worked out great on paper. When I got to the Galapagos plans had changed do to a flight and my desire never to ride on a fast boat from one Island to another.

One of my blogs that I wrote goes into more detail Backpacking the Can I Backpack the Galapagos?
