Day 2

Arrive Galapagos and explore Santa Cruz

Fly into Baltra Island, and then cross the Itabaca Channel, which separates this island from Santa Cruz. On the other side, a bus will take you to the highlands of Santa Cruz Island to visit the Giant Tortoises Reserve. View these reptiles in their natural habitat, a unique experience! A stop is made at the Twin Pit Craters, which is a great depression of volcanic material. Scalesia trees, ferns, mosses and orchids provide an exotic backdrop. A box lunch is provided and then it is on to the Finch Bay Eco Hotel to enjoy its multiple attractions: pool, sea kayaks, the white coral beach in front of the hotel, or a nap in your hammock. In the evening, dinner includes the flavors of local and international gastronomy, one more attraction of the Finch Bay Eco Hotel.
