Punta Pitt and Cerro Brujo

Nov 17, 2018 - National Geographic Islander

It seems as if we’ve seen it all these weeks aboard National Geographic Islander, however, the surprises are still coming! Today while visiting Punta Pitt, we spotted red-footed boobies. Some of them were flying, others nesting, or building their nests. We also saw two of endemic animals of San Cristobal Island, the San Cristobal mockingbird and the San Cristobal lava lizard. It was a fantastic hike to start the day.

Our last visit was the perfect place to relax and enjoy the nature around us. Cerro Brujo Beach is a sandy beach with turquoise waters and soft waves. Sunset arrived on way back to National Geographic Islander and after a few words from the Captain wishing us a safe return to our respective countries, we were reminded that a piece of our hearts will stay forever in the Galapagos.

Ixora Berdonces


Ixora was born in the Galapagos Islands, back when the streets were made of sand and gravel. Void of TV and tablets, her childhood friends and pristine natural surroundings made for an inspiring upbringing. She was always drawn to the ocean and her local environment, with her first adventures taking place underwater, in mangrove estuaries, and perched in treetops. Not surprisingly, she was scuba diving before the age of 12 and led her first diving trips as a Dive Master in the Galapagos Marine Reserve when she was 18.
