DAY 3: MONDAY
AM: ISABELA ISLAND – TAGUS COVE

If you like historic remnants, then you will enjoy finding what was left behind by pirates and sailors in the 1800s.  This site was one of their preferred pit stops while traveling the seas. The hike here will provide incredible views of the cove and on the other side the mangrove forest where the last 35 pairs of Mangrove finches thrive.

PM: ISABELA ISLAND – URBINA BAY

Millions of years ago, Urbina Bay was once laying on the ocean floor.  Volcanic uplifts caused it to rise and now it is occupied by sea lions, land iguanas and flightless cormorants.  It is a great place to enjoy some free time on the beach or the guide may suggest a hike.

DIA 4: TUESDAY
AM: ISABELA ISLAND – ELIZABETH BAY

This visitor site is visited by panga only as the park authorities have no authorized landing in order to protect the island.  While in the panga you can appreciate a large abundance of marine life that can be seen in the clear waters.  It is great for snorkeling.

PM: ISABELA ISLAND – MORENO POINT

The beautiful rocky shores of Moreno Point offers a plethora of birds to be seen.  It is truly a birders delight.  The main attraction are the coast lagoons where white tipped sharks can be seen and the panoramic views of Sierra Negra and Cerro Azul volcanoes cannot be missed.

DIA 5 : WEDNESDAY
AM: SANTA CRUZ ISLAND – CHARLES DARWIN RESEARCH STATION

The Charles Darwin Research Station is one of the Galapagos Island’s most important sites for visitors. It is a research facility that has an extensive collection of Galapagos plant life specimens carefully preserved and also acts as a biological research station and active breeding center operated by the Charles Darwin Foundation.  Their biggest conservation efforts are to one day eliminate all invasive and non-native plants and animals destroying endemic species within the islands. 

PM:SANTA CRUZ ISLAND – HIGHLANDS

The highlands are located in the northern part of Santa Cruz and can reach elevations up to 1500 meters.  This area is rich with hills, ferns, volcanoes and wildlife.  A great contrast to the molten lava hardened beaches and rocky areas of other islands already seen.  It is home to giant tortoises, mockingbirds, finches and many other species.

DIA 6: THURSDAY
AM: SOUTH PLAZA ISLAND

South Plaza is one of the smallest islands with a visitor site, but is home to an incredible amount of diverse flora and fauna. It has a large population of Sesuvium plants like the prickly pear cactus tree that is an important source of food for the land iguana. Just a few years ago mice were finally eradicated from the island, helping the population of land iguanas grow healthily once more. The amazing colors of the turquoise waters against the black lava create a setting for amazing photography opportunities.


TRANSFER TO BALTRA AIRPORT

After this last visit, transfer to Baltra airport for your return flight to mainland Ecuador.
