This morning we land on the second largest island in the archipelago and encounter a bustling human population. All ships visit Santa Cruz as this island has a large population of giant tortoises that we are able to encounter in the lush highlands. A very distinct vegetation zone surrounds these massive reptiles as they move in and out of the dense undergrowth, relax in the settled water ponds, and become covered in thick mud.
