Today we visited one of the most important sanctuaries of frigatebirds found in this region, and that is Iguana Island.

Our guests were taken in with the beauty of the place; our naturalists took them to hikes right after setting the beach. It was a pleasant day off the vessel while guests enjoyed time with friends and family while walking the trails of the island. The white sand beach and massive volcanic rocks were just for us when we arrived there to watch through binoculars the beauty of these amazing birds. We had the chance to watch some other wildlife such as hermit crabs and laughing gulls.

Finally, we came back to the vessel to cruise to the next location and since this is New Year’s Eve, we celebrated to receive 2020 with arms wide open for more adventures.
