  • Another fantastic stop on our 5 island cruse in the Galapagos. Every inch as we see on all the National Geographic special. Another must see.  more »
  • Gorgeous... I've seen the courtship of frigates, blue feet with little ones and many iguanas. A spectacle of nature! Very nice also snorkeling

  • Only a small island, to the North of Baltra, but such a stunning concentration of nesting birds! We were wandering among nesting Frigates, stepping over yellow land iguanas, with a huge amount overhead and coastal flying. A wonderful place.
  • Wow, this island had most of the stuff the Galapagos is famous for. Loved all the nesting birds. Iguanas showing the complete life cycle. Many sea lions. There were so many activities on the island it seemed like a Disney park. No food vending or anamatronics.
