Travel to Bachas Beach to go swimming. View the floating pier which was left after the end of World War II. View the flamingos, Sally Lightfoot crabs, hermit crabs, black necked stilts, and whimbrels which make Bachas Beach their home.
Eat lunch aboard the ship at the Baltra port while the ship reprovisions and then sail for Dragon Hill in the afternoon to see flamingos, common stilts, pintail ducks and other species of birds. Take a short walk to the lagoon behind the beach.
In the morning, travel to South Plaza Island and view one of the largest populations of land iguanas in the Galapagos archipelago. Take a rocky trail which circumnavigates the island and displays a combination of dry and coastal vegetation zones.
After lunch, set sail for Santa Fe to view its Opuntia cactus forest. Snorkel in the picturesque turquoise lagoon and play with sea lions in the shallows.
Day 5 San Cristobal
Following breakfast, visit the Interpretation Center in San Cristobal before transferring to the airport for your connecting flight to the mainland.
The trip might have been the absolute best of our lifetime (thus far). We particularly want to commend our guide Peter in the Guilin area-he was so incredibly attentive, energetic, enthusiastic-and absolutely dedicated to ensuring that our meals were 100% vegetarian.
