The Galapagos Islands, or "Archipelago de Colón" as it's officially known in Spanish, are found about 1000 kilometers of the Ecuadorian coast in the Pacific Ocean. They're famous for their biological diversity and for being one of the places after which Darwin based his theory of evolution. That aside, it's an incredible place to see giant turtles in their natural habitat and go diving with fish and sharks.

Tortuga Bay

You have to walk a 2.5 kilometer track to reach the beach, but it is well worth it, white sand and possible bathing, next to iguanas, flamingos and pelicans. You have to register to enter and you can visit a marine reserve exhibition.. Even if you go in summer there is almost always nobody else there.

Santa Cruz Island

Santa Cruz Island is not the largest of the Galapagos Islands but it is the most populated. we reached the island by regular flight landing on Baltra Island, then climbed on a boat that lasted about 15 min. Once there we took a taxi to Port Ayora, and there are several hotels in the area and the locals are friendly. The locals were very attentive to the tourists. The highlight is the wildlife such as sea lions, boobies, pelicans, herons, crustaceans, iguanas, turtles etc. I have to stress that most of the wildlife is hidden beneath it's waters. We couldn't fail to observe a geological formation of these special islands. It is a peaceful island to explore corner to corner. You can hire diving services, organized trips to other islands, cruises etc. Specifically I suggest the services of Don sope, don_sope@hotmail.com, for diving and guided by the islands, he is familiar with many aspects of the island and that many locals rent rooms to tourists.

It is a spectacle to watch the pelicans as they wait patiently for the fishermen to clean their fish they sell and thus give them the a snack. Fishermen make them dance with only the movement of their arms. I would spend hours watching them and they do not seem to mind having visitors watching and who don't stop taking photographs.
Volcanoes in Puerto Villamil
Sierra Negra
(3)
The last eruption of this volcano was in 2005 and you can still feel the heat if you approach a crack. We did a 5 hour Trek around the immense crater to get into a moonscape and see smoke rising from the volcano on a whole new scale. It is certainly an incomparable experience and for a few hours you will feel like you're on a new plant. See nature in a way you never have before and enjoy the beauty of desolation, the brightness of the dried lava and lava tunnels, the colors and much more.

These small islands are a paradise for snorkeling and swimming with giant turtles. This is something you don't do everyday so take full opportunity when you visit. Do not be concerned about sharks because they only come at sunset to eat. You will also see sea lions and many iguanas.

Wall of Tears
(2)
The Wall of Tears is a 100m-long wall that certain inmates built with lava rocks under difficult conditions. The best is not the wall, you have to stop at every beach, mangrove swamp and corner you'll find yourself back at the wall in Puerto Villamil, you will find wonderful places. The easiest way is to agree a price with a taxi driver to charge you by the hour, they know where it is best to stop, and are in no hurry because you have agreed, a reasonable price to pay is about 10 dollars per hour.

In my opinion this reserve is even more interesting than the Darwin center, turtles are completely free. You go to look for them. You are bound to find many huge ones and if you're careful you can photograph them. We provide rubber boots because the ground is quite muddy. Essential.

Suarez Point

Suarez Point is on Spanish island in the Galapagos archipelago (Ecuador). It was the fauna of these islands that inspired Charles Darwin's theory of evolution. One of the most curious things is that this island's animals are not afraid of man.
