Bartolome and Sombrero Chino

Mar 14, 2019 - National Geographic Endeavour II


The early morning wake up was worth it today. We hiked to the top of Bartolome where we had the best light for pictures. The scenery of this place is just stunning everywhere you look, especially the geology formations. The day kept surprising us with amazing snorkeling and boat rides, where we enjoyed a plethora of marine life. Closing the day with a tasty barbecue on the observation deck of the ship was a relaxing way to prepare us for the following day.
