No time to snore in La Rabida Hostal much upon arrival, so we were glad we had come in last evening instead of the midnight flight: The Adventure-Life escort had us up at 5am to take us to a plane to Baltra, Galapagos, via Guayquil. Magic islands. Baltra is barren, but a quick drive took us to ferries across to Santa Cruz, the a drive over the highlands and settle at Red Mangrove right next to the Darwin Institute. Rest, then a wonderful meal. No time to shop, but I did get to use my bad Spanish a bit walking around hunting cash machines and pharmacies. Oh yes! snorkeling, too!
