One more thing! Any recommendations for boats I should / should not go on? Thanks!

i went on a boat called the flamingo in april 2005. it was a great trip with an excellent itinerary. i shopped around in quito and this boat went to more islands than any other, though it was offered by several agencies at different prices. it takes hardly any time or skill to shop around for a tour in quito... companies are all giving out ¨last minute deals¨ and always seem to have those one or two spots left to fill. for an 8 day tour, i paid $660 for the cruise, $334 for a flight from quito, and $100 park entry fee. most everyone on my tour paid a different price, varying in the hundreds of dollars. i was worried about the quality of the tour id get after reading so many warnings about how you get what you pay for.... by no means was our boat luxurious, but i had no complaints. they gave us tons of food each meal, the crew was great, the room i slept in was slightly bigger than my closet at home, and there was always something to see and do. my favorite island was bartolome. i noticed that on the fancier boats, the tourists seemed to be a bit older and looked like they were having less fun than the ten of us on the flamingo.
