Floreana Island: It is located 60 kms to the east of the Espanola Island. Floreana is well known for its attractive history of pirates, whalers, and settlers. Here you can observe between December and May pink flamingos and nesting sea turtles. Also you can find a small population of galapagos penguins. Floreana also known as Santa Maria Island has approximately 150 habitants and is one of the four islands populated in Galapagos. His access port is Prieta Beach. In the inside of the island at the top, you can visit the Chakras of Ritter and, to the South, the Haven of Peace.
La Lobería on San Cristobal: One of the most visited places in the Galapagos is this beautiful beach of coral sand and crystalline waters, named after the large number of sea lions that can be seen every day, lying between the rocks or plunging into the sea. In addition to sea lions, turtles and sea iguanas are frequent on the beach, as well as several species of birds, such as the Maria canary, frigates and various kinds of finches. It is also possible to snorkel and if you have good fortune to swim with a sea lion.
North Seymour Islet: Covered with low vegetation and dense, is notable for its almost immaculate state of nature, something that is more difficult to find in larger islands. The tour is conducted based on a trail of 2 km in length that crosses it from end to end, route that allows crossing with frigates, land iguanas and sea lions.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.
