Exotic Destination – American – $451: Miami – Galapagos Islands, Ecuador. Roundtrip, including all Taxes

Exotic destinations are rarely cheap — this is more than our 6 cents per mile criterion. We are publishing it because the Galapagos does not go on sale often. American is putting the Galapagos Islands on sale again — this time, about $70 more than 3 months ago. Miami is a relatively inexpensive city to connect to.
