Santa Cruz Island

Nov 02, 2017 - National Geographic Endeavour II


Today we arrived to the second largest island in the archipelago, Santa Cruz.

Here our guests witnessed a human settlement in the Galapagos for the first time on the expedition. We visited places like the Charles Darwin Research Station, El Trapiche coffee farm and a giant tortoises reserve in the highlands of Santa Cruz.
