We will pick you up from your hotel to the Santa Cruz Highlands, which is probably the most visited area in the Galapagos. This area concentrates vast extensions of forests of Scalesia, Miconia, and giant tortoises. This is a great place to observe these iconic animals in their natural habitat. After lunch at this local farm, we will visit the twin craters of the Galapagos, it is a rewarding visit for nature-loving tourists. The lush green landscape of the highlands stands in stark contrast to the more arid coastlines of the lowlands, providing a very different Galapagos experience. Lookouts over the crater sinkholes show off the stunning scenery, and there are plenty of interesting birds too. Later we will move to Tortuga Bay, which is a white sand beach located on the south coast of the island of Santa Cruz. Enjoy a 2-hour walk (round trip) to this beautiful beach that is perfectly preserved and with the presence of animals such as iguanas and beach crabs. You have the opportunity to swim in the mangrove swamp that is separated from the beach.
