Santa Cruz Island

Jul 26, 2018 - National Geographic Endeavour II

Santa Cruz Island is the economical hub of Galapagos, as it is the location of one of the best visitor sites in Galapagos to observe giant tortoises, and its position in the center of this archipelago makes this island one of the most visited Islands in Galapagos. We had a wonderful day exploring these two scientific centers, as well as the town of Puerto Ayora, and the wild highlands of this island.
