The central islands of the Galapagos Archipelago are varied in colours and landscapes. This morning we visited Bartolome with its iconic views over Sullivan Bay, and it is known a small colony of Galapagos penguins live in the area. A challenging hike to the summit of this tiny island was on schedule in the early morning, and later we enjoyed the sea and the sand of the surroundings.
Sombrero Chino is a spatter cone just off shore from Santiago Island. The landscape is quite unique with its brand new lava flows, black and treacherous, dating back to as early as 1897. The channel that divides islet and island is very rich in nutrients, and thanks to that we had a fantastic time snorkeling and exploring the shoreline.
