Islas de Ecuador

El tesoro real de Ecuador por mucho es la cadena de islas de Galápagos; un sitio con Patrimonio de la Humanidad de la UNESCO que alberga una población de animales y plantas como ninguna otra en el planeta. Aún más milagroso es el hecho que aquí los animales están acostumbrados a los visitantes humanos, y no les importa compartir sus playas. Esto quiere decir que tendrá muchas oportunidades para observar la sorprendente vida silvestre de cerca (desde una distancia respetable, por supuesto).

Of course, Santa Cruz has plenty to offer all on its own. There’s a beautiful beach on Tortuga Bay. Follow a trail through the lava tunnels and pay a visit to the Charles Darwin Research Station.

You can find beautiful waterfront hotels that allow you to take in the tropical atmosphere or stay in one of the more remote hotels in the lush highlands.

San Cristóbal Ecuador

Snorkelers and birdwatchers have plenty to do on a trip to this easternmost Galápagos island. Travel a short distance from the coast to León Dormido, a rocky formation that attracts a stunning variety of wildlife. Visit the Rosa Blanca Bay to see clear waters and a beautiful beach. This is one of the best places on the island to snorkel and see sharks and rays.

San Cristóbal has its share of interesting beaches. Near the town, you can visit a rocky coastline where you can find sea lions. San Cristóbal has a stunning landscape around the Punta Pucuna Beach, which has several memorable volcanic cones. Cerro Brujo Beach is famous for its coral sand beaches and also has great snorkeling.
