Santa Cruz Island: Thanks to its location in the center and its proximity to the Baltra airport, is one of best known Galapagos tourist places, housing the city with the largest population of all, from where they leave the most of the boats visiting other islands and islets. One of its biggest tourist attractions is The Station Scientific Darwin, a center of scientific research open to the visitors, where is possible observe terrestrial lizards and turtles of big magnitude. Another site that highlights in Santa Cruz Island corresponds to Turtle Bay, paradise white sands beach and crystal clear waters, to the coasts arrived hundreds of turtles to lay their eggs.
Isabella Island: Even though is the largest island of all, it has a unique town corresponding to Villamil Port, a beautiful village in which there are numerous accommodations and whose atmosphere is notable for being rather more quiet than Ayora Port. Inside its main attractions stand out Punta Moreno, where live flamingos and many other types of birds, from where you have a beautiful view of Sierra Black, Blue Hill and the top of Fernandina Island. To discover other kinds of wildlife is a good idea to move to Urbina Bay, where there are iguanas, sea lions, cormorants, penguins and blue-footed boobies.
North Seymour Island Trail: The small island of Seymour North is considered one of the most extraordinary places on the islands to see birds, housing the largest colony of royal frigates, as well as blue-footed boobies and bifurcated seagulls. The island maintains only a running trail, which, two kilometers in length allow us to appreciate its rocky landscapes, where there are only some shrubs and cactus, there are countless birds and iguanas.
Dragon Hill: It has its name because to for a long time, was one of the few places in the Santa Cruz Island where were land iguanas in healthy state. This place was part of varied efforts to maintain the colonies of iguanas, in order to ensure their reproduction. At present there are no dogs in Dragon Hill, although the Galapagos National Park carries out a lot of controls of other animals that can be dangerous. In the beautiful lagoons present in this site, there is shrimp (Artemia salina), the same as the food of the flamingos. At certain times of the year there is more abundance and therefore the quantity of these birds is larger. In times with many precipitations the water becomes too sweet and therefore the population of crustaceans is smaller, which has consequences on the amount of flamingos. Dragon Hill has been open to the general public since 1993. The beach has rocky formations. At high tide it is an excellent sector to do surface diving.
