Day 1: Santa Cruz
The Galapagos’ most populated and main island, Santa Cruz provides an excellent opportunity to enjoy a relaxing day on land. Go snorkeling at Tortuga Bay or snorkeling at Puerto Ayora, then take a stroll over to the Charles Darwin Research Center and say hello to the oldest and last remaining local tortoise subspecies in existence.
Day 2: Setting sail
With so many different boats offering so many different itineraries, all distinct in their own way, choosing an excursion may be a difficult task. However, a day trip from Puerto Ayora through the Canal del Amor (or the Love Channel) through to La Loberia Island, named after its large sea wolf colony, may be just the trick.
Day 3: Exploring the wildlife at Espanola
As the oldest island in the Galapagos, Espanola to the far southeast offers a plethora of incredible wildlife that you will not want to pass up. Take a hike through Punta Suarez.
