South Plazas Island, GalapagosPM: South Plaza

The turquoise waters of the channel here contrast brilliantly with the white sand and black lava of the shoreline, while a carpet of scarlet Sesuvium succulents serves as groundcover for a grove of luminescent green prickly-pear cactus beyond, populated by yellow-grey land iguanas. Along the coastline one finds sea lion colonies, while sea birds play with the thermals that form along the cliffs of this small but spectacular island.

 

 

 

 

 


►  DAY 02: Santa Fe Island / San Cristobal Island: Cerro Colorado Details

Santa Fe Island, GalapagosAM: Santa Fe

In the morning, take the dinghy over to this idyllic sandy-white beach populated by large colonies of curious sea lions; majestic Hawks are often observed perched atop salt bushes. Santa Fe’s Land Iguana is unique to this island and can be spotted during the walk. We can also enjoy snorkeling and swimming along a natural wave barrier or a great ride on board the glass-bottom boat.

 

 

 

 

 

Cerro Colorado San Cristobal GalapagosPM: Cerro Colorado

After lunch, we disembark at Puerto Baquerizo Moreno, Galapagos’ capital; take a 45-minute drive to the southern shore.

After the walk, if conditions are favorable, there is a chance to swim from the beach and snorkel.

In the afternoon, a relaxing dinghy ride along the shores of tuff-stone layers takes us to Cerro Brujo’s expansive, white coral beach, great for walking, with rewarding bird-watching featuring seabirds and shore birds. Also, look out for Galapagos sea lions. These are the same shores that Charles Darwin walked upon, back in September 1835

Gardner Bay | Española Island | GalapagosPM: Gardner Bay

In the afternoon, we set down at this beautiful, white coral beach for a short walk to observe the sea lions, mockingbirds, finches, or enjoy the beach. There is great snorkeling in this area, or else there’s time to kayak or ride the glass-bottom boat.
