Today National Geographic Endeavour II is visiting Cerro Dragon, located in the northern part of Santa Cruz Island. Here, we find one of the largest colonies of land iguanas. During our hike, we could spot on them all around the trail. Some of them were sunbathing on the vegetation while others were active, and we saw the zig-zag head movement that they do to impress females and delimit their territory. Ecuadorian buffet lunch was set in the dining room. We started with the traditional ceviche and ended up with tres leches dessert!

Zodiac rides and snorkeling were part of the activities today. Wildlife were all over the place: eagle spotted rays, sharks, blue footed boobies, great blue heron, marine iguanas and hundreds of other animals were very close to us, letting us know why Galapagos is so special!
