Ranchos of Santa Cruz: Although it is known that in several islands of Galapagos you can see breeding sectors of giant tortoises, there is no more advisable alternative, than to appreciate them in freedom, something that puts at our disposal ranchos and haciendas in the high zones of the island of Santa Cruz. Some of these places are El Chato, Manzanillo and Primicias, with paths that respect the environment, where you can easily see these exotic animals in their natural environment. It is important to emphasize that, during the period from June to August; turtles tend to move to the lowland of the island to nest, diminishing the possibility of observing them.
Sullivan Bay on Santiago Island: Sullivan Bay, site of one of the most beautiful habitats of the archipelago, with impressive lava spaces solidified in waves, like a landscape of mars. A journey of about a mile and a half, allows tourists to know the most relevant areas of interest of the Bay, appreciating interesting mineral samples, among which there are figures of trees, before being calcined by the eruptions of the island .
Natural Lookout “La Escalera” in Bartolome Island: A natural spectacle located at the top of a hill, at more than 100 meters of altitude, from where are one of the most popular postcards of the islands, composed by a narrow strip of sand separates by the ocean into two bays, with the coast of neighboring Santiago Island as background and a stone strut at one of its ends. After enjoying the views, it is possible to go down to the beautiful beaches, where it is possible to do surface diving and snorkeling. The two most important species of Bartolome are the sea turtles, which choose this place to spawn and the Galapagos penguins.
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.
