In the afternoon head to Darwin Bay beach for a hike in small forest of mangrove swamp where we will discover a colony of Frigates, marine iguanas, red-foot boobies and mask boobies, the great terrestrial and cactus finch. After this visit in land, we have the option that our passengers enjoy swimming and snorkeling in the bay.
