This full day tour starts at 8:00 AM from the Casa Opuntia Hotel. You will be expertly led by an English speaking, Galapagos naturalist guide.
Start your day with a 40-minute round trip hike to the only permanent freshwater lake in the Galapagos. The walk provides superb views as well as an introduction to the highlands and its endemic plant species. The lake itself lies in an extinct volcanic crater and is home to gallinules, whitecheeked pintail ducks, and magnificent frigate birds. The lake’s freshwater is actually necessary for frigate birds’ survival on this island, as they must wash the salt from their feathers in order to remain light enough to fly. We then continue onto “La Galapaguera” a semi-natural breeding center for the amazing Galápagos
Tortoises. You can enjoy a 1 hour trail walk and see these fantastic animal at their natural environment. Afterwards, we will go towards Puerto Chino, a beach so beautiful it hardly looks real. We will take some time here to enjoy the divine waters and sands.
Return to Casa Opuntia Hotel at 4:00 PM.

Our guide and driver were very good with their knowledge and were very helpful with our questions. It was a very pleasant visit that would have been impossible to do on our own. Hotels and restaurants were fantastic. The special places we got to go to, like the kitchens, were great. Enjoyed the entire trip!
