Today we visited two small but interesting islands: South Plaza on the north part of Santa Cruz and Santa Fe to the east. These islands are home to two different species of iguanas: the Galapagos land iguana and the Santa Fe land iguana. The two are home to two different species of prickly pear cacti, both with characteristics unique to their locations. We also observed a number of seabirds and a few colonies of the iconic Galapagos sea lions.
