Santa Cruz Island

Sep 06, 2018 - National Geographic Endeavour II


Today we arrived to the second largest island in the archipelago, Santa Cruz. The day started with a visit to the Charles Darwin Research Station. Later we moved to the El Trapiche coffee farm and the giant tortoise reserve in the highlands of Santa Cruz. And at the end of the day, local musicians performed Latin and Andean rhythms.
