In the morning, head to San Cristobal. Begin the day walking along the incredible beach at Cerro Brujo, which is composed of white coral and volcanic ash. Cerro Brujo is an eroded tuff cone that is partly composed of the a'a' lava type, creating a fascinating landscape. Here, you may find young sea turtles and rays, sea lions, warblers, finches, and many different sea birds. Then sail to Leon Dormido, an old lava cone that is now home to many birds such as blue-footed boobies, Nazca boobies, and frigate birds. The snorkeling is phenomenal, with great opportunities to see spotted eagle rays, sea turtles, tropical fish, and the Galapagos shark.
Head to the Interpretation Center in the afternoon, where you can learn all about how the islands were formed, ocean currents, the arrival of different species in the Galapagos, and many other natural circumstances that have made the Galapagos islands what they are today. Or Head to the Colorado Hill Tortoises Protection and Growing Center, located at 40 minutes approximately by bus to the southeast of the island. This center was built to improve the status of the population of the island tortoises. The center includes a large corral, a Visitors Center, a breeding center and an interpretative trail. Along this trail is possible to see different species of native and endemic plants as well birds as the San Cristobal Mockingbird, Yellow Warblers, and many species of finches and the Galapagos flycatcher.
