May 10, 2018 - National Geographic Islander
Today we are visiting two impressive internal islands that hold unique species of land iguanas; today we are seen adaptation at its best, Plazas and Santa Fe Islands.
Soon after breakfast, we had a dry landing on a very small and powerful Island; Plazas where we had a mile walk among land iguanas that were relatively close to unique prickly pear cactus with “trunks” giving them a look like a tree. Plazas has a cliff where many seabirds and even fish could be seen.
Back onboard for a well-deserved lunch while the ship repositions to Santa Fe Island.
From the distance, we could see our landing on a white sandy beach and as we approach it, we were being greeted by white tipped reef sharks, white spotted eagle rays, turtles, pelican, sea lions and even a blue footed booby. Today we were searching for a species of land iguana that can only be seen here. Some of us opted for kayaks as we were surrounded by an impressive landscape.
