In the afternoon, head to Punta Suarez, a rocky outcropping sustaining one of the largest and most varied populations of sea birds in the archipelago. Watch these birds as they swoop and dive along the cliffs, dodging impressive water spouts and pounding surf.
This afternoon, visit historic Post Office Bay, landing area for the island's colonists and site of the famous wooden barrel that has served as a post office for mariners and tourists since the 18th century. Continue on to Baroness lookout and be rewarded by stunning views of the island below.
South Plaza Island, though small in stature, is home to some of the Galapagos' most interesting creatures. Notably, hybrid iguanas are found in abundance here. These species are a cross between marine and land iguanas. The rugged cliffs of the island are also home to a variety of entertaining sea birds.
Spend the afternoon at Bachas Beach on Santa Cruz Island. Decomposed coral has formed the soft, white sand of Bachas, making it a favorite nesting site for sea turtles. Two abandoned barges are visible off of the coast, remnants of the military's presence during WWII.
Travel back to Baltra for your departing flight.
