This is so much more than just a map. I bought this after already booking a typical Galapagos cruise so that I could get a good idea of where I'd be going and which islands I'd be visiting. If you're hoping to see something specific in the Galapagos my advice would be to buy the map BEFORE you book your cruise so that you can ensure you will be visiting the correct island! There's lots of information about the various islands and the types of wildlife found there, with good pictures. It also has lots of info about historical figures connected with the islands including the first to encounter them, buccaneers, biologists, zoologists, conservationists, as well as Charles Darwin.
This is not a handy little map to be kept in your pocket, to be extracted for a quick look to see where you are but a (bit of an unwieldy) full size job for spreading on a table and poring over. Great information though.
