Puerto Baquerizo Moreno, the capital of the islands, is a great city where you will find all kinds of services. On the outskirts of the town there is a modern and well equipped interpretation centre which is worth visiting to learn more about the archipelago. This place is the starting point of a paved path that goes up to the viewpoint of Cerro Tijerita and then goes on to Baquerizo beach, the bay where the HMS Beagle docked and where Darwin set foot on the Galápagos for the first time. Here you will see a statue that commemorates this event.
Adventure on a desert island
La Española is the southernmost island and a place you should definetely visit when you came to the Galápagos. This is an uninhabited island, so the only way to get here is by boat or taking a tour from San Cristóbal. Since it is the southernmost island, it is the first one to receive the Humboldt current, making this an island full of planKton and food. This is the reason why there are great colonies of sea birds: different types of boobies, cormorants, frigate birds, seagulls... Here you will also find marine iguanas, napping lazily in the middle of the dock, indifferent of the people who pass by just centimetres from them. A path authorised by the park will allow you to explore most of the island.
Snorkelling in paradise
Enjoy one of the most spectacular places in the world for snorkelling: shallow, calm and crystal-clear waters make this an exceptional marine sanctuary. This is a place full of unique geological formations, where a great number of endemic species of the Galápagos Islands live. An adventure you cannot miss.
Explore a volcano
Climbing to the Sierra Negra volcano crater is an activity you cannot miss if you love geology or if you like long walks and adventures. Erupted in 2005 for the last time, the Sierra Negra volcano, a geographically unique site, is surrounded by incredible lava landscapes, embellished by the endemic flora and fauna of this place.
