Galápagos Islands
Most people think of the Galápagos as little more than rocks and lizards, but in fact around 20,000 people live there, most in Puerto Ayora, on Isla Santa Cruz, where marine iguanas litter the town like fat, lazy squirrels. Puerto Ayora has boomed in the last decade as mainlanders have chased the tourist dollar to the islands; and the little port suffers from crime, poor water treatment, and substandard schools. These challenges are invisible to most visitors, who typically spend only an hour or two in town. On a slow-moving tropical morning, it's easy to conclude that the biggest problem in the Galápagos is the risk of tripping over a reptile at the Hotel Sol y Mar.
