The Galápagos Islands (officially named Archipiélago de Colón) are an archipelago of volcanic islands in the equatorial Pacific Ocean. They are located 972 kilometers (525 nautical miles) west of Ecuador, which they are officially a part of. The Galápagos comprise an Ecuadorian province, a national park, and a biological marine reserve. The islands have a population slightly over twenty-five thousand, who principally speak Spanish.
Much like Las Cinco Muertes, the Galápagos are geologically young and are best-known for their enormous number of endemic species that were famously studied by Charles Darwin during the voyage of the Beagle. This ultimately led to Darwin publishing The Origin of Species, which in turn led to the popularization of the theory of evolution.
Paul Kirby mentioned (in truth, lied) about having visited the Galápagos with his wife as one of the many adventures they had undertaken as part of his facade to convince Alan Grant to help them rescue their son, Eric, from Isla Sorna.
