CHARLES DARWIN STATION
Visit to the Charles Darwin Station – where we will be able to observe and learn about the breeding of the giant Galapagos tortoises.
VISIT TORTUGA BAY
Tortuga Bay is a beautiful white sand beach, named for being a nesting site for sea turtles. It is divided into two coves: Playa Brava and Playa Mansa.
It can be accessed by panga or walking from Puerto Ayora (2.5 km from Baltra Avenue to the end of Playa Brava). The estimated walking time is 50 minutes.
Between the brava and mansa beaches, there is a circular path that runs through the intertidal zone and crosses through a forest of prickly pear (opuntia sp) and ends in an area of mangrove jeli at the beginning of the mansa beach.
The brava beach is an ideal place for surfing while the mansa beach is perfect for snorkeling and kayaking.
THE CRACKS ( LAS GRIETAS )
The visitor site Las Grietas is located west of Bahia Academia on Santa Cruz Island. To go to this place you must take a boat at the dock of Puerto Ayora and disembark at the access dock to Punta Angermeyer. To get to Las Grietas, you must pass through the beach of the Germans and several private properties.
From the upper part of the islands there are water filtrations that reach the coast of the island, in some cases directly to the sea and in others to cracks or subway lagoons, once the fresh water meets the salt water, it becomes brackish. In the case of the Las Grietas visitor site, this mixture can be clearly observed, due to the presence of two layers of water.
The crack has an approximate depth of 12 meters, taking as a reference when the tide is high and 10 meters wide at the top.
In the lagoons located near the trail, it is an ideal place to observe migratory and coastal birds.
SANTA FE ISLAND
This visitor site is located on the northeast end of Santa Fe Island in a bay with turquoise waters and two white sand beaches.
It is home to the Santa Fe land iguana which is larger, paler in color and has a very similar biology to the other species of land iguana.
TWIN CRATERS – AIRPORT
Los Gemelos is located in the high part of the island of Santa Cruz, a few kilometers from the Santa Rosa parish, next to the road that leads to Baltra, at an altitude of approximately 600 meters above sea level in the scalesia zone.
Los Gemelos are considered crater holes and their formation was due to the collapse of superficial materials inside subway chambers. It consists of two craters, the smaller crater is on the east side, while the larger crater is on the west side.
The Witch-bird is the most outstanding terrestrial bird of the highlands of almost all the islands, the area of Los Gemelos is the best place for its observation, since they are found in large numbers in the Scalesia forest.
