May 24, 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 over two miles 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 been greeted by sea lions and then we had two different walks one short and another one long along an impressive cliff for a breathtaking landscape. Back to the beach for a refreshing rest at the beach with sea lions and with white tipped reef sharks, white spotted eagle rays, turtles, pelican 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.
