    Charles Darwin Research Station

    Santa Cruz Island, Ecuador
    4.5
    5 reviews

    Fantastic research station that also doubles as the essential visitor's center for the Galapagos Islands. Sadly, the place is often a source of conflict between the National Park and local fishermen. But it is a must see - all the species you might miss elsewhere are right here to observe and learn about!

    Just a boat ride, and short hike from town and super worth it. It is a shear slot canyon with a beautiful swimming hole in the bottom. It is salt water and super deep so you can hurl yourself into it from the walls, and snorkel the tropical fish within it. Spectacular!!!

    One of the highlights of our Galapagos trip was snorkel the waters in and around Gordon Rocks. The rock formation is what's left of an ancient volcano. It's famous for schools of hammerheads and circulating currents. It's not a beginning dive site. I remember swimming with sea lions, watching a penguin zip by, admiring an eagle ray. Something going on ...

    1 review

    Because a section of the lava tube collapse, an opening was created for us mere humans to set foot into a long "dried out" lava tunnel. Descending in the tunnel was like exploring the abyss. This was going to be an adventure as once inside, there are climbing and walking on uneven surfaces that red hot lava once flowed. Escaping ...

This pier is where passengers will coordinate with water taxis to get to the boats that they need to get on ...

    Wild iguanas, red crabs, sea lions, and birds, everywhere here! They are people friendly but i suppose it helps that people are friendly to them! Puerto Ayora is the most urban town center within the Galapagos archipelago while still maintaining its wildlife friendly nature.

    Los Gemelos

    Santa Cruz Island, Galapagos

    1 review

    Los Gemelos, the twins, are two massive craters that were created by collapsed lava tubes. Now the two craters are covered by Scalesia forest. Scalesia trees are also known as "Darwin's finches of the plant world" because on the different islands within the archipelago, different subspecies of these same trees can be compared to demonstrate adaptation.
