Mar 13, 2019 - National Geographic Islander
Today we came to the largest town of the Galapagos, Porto Ayora, which is located south of Santa Cruz Island. At this busy island we truly had a wonderful day, and one marked with several excellent day activities. We visited the Charles Darwin Research Station, the giant tortoise breeding center, a lava tunnel, a local farm, and then we saw wild tortoises!
After exploring Porto Ayora, we returned to National Geographic Islander, and after dinner we enjoyed a presentations series along with local musicians. We had a wonderful experience over the course of this voyage and got a taste of the local culture as well.
