Travellers who want the chance to see - and photograph - some unusual wildlife should certainly consider booking a trip to the Galapagos Islands.
Located off the coast of Ecuador, two recent visitors noted that one of the best ways to see the islands is by boat.
On arrival at their first destination, they revealed that they were "immediately won over by the sheer animal magic of the place".
Writing for CNN, Frances and Michael Howorth explained that there are always exotic creatures around for visitors to marvel at.
The animals you can expect to see range from pelicans and Galapagos penguins to sea lions, marine iguanas and tortoises, the couple commented.
Mr and Mrs Howorth concluded: "The destination is one of the modern wonders of the world, without doubt best viewed from the deck of a luxury yacht."
Travellers who want to take home some holiday snaps of some of the islands' most famous residents may be pleased to learn that the population of giant tortoises has increased substantially one on of the islands since the 1970s.
In June the Guardian reported that their numbers on Espanola have risen from just 15 animals to between 1,500 and 2,000 due to a successful tortoise repatriation programme.
