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 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.
