We arrived at Baltra Island from Quito by plane, took the bus from the airport to the ferry to take us to Isla Santa Cruz and then a 45-minute taxi ride to Puerto Ayora. As we drove towards the town of Puerto Ayora we were lucky to see our first Galápagos tortoise. The taxi driver stopped so that we could take a few photos then dropped us off at our hotel. After checking in we wandered into the town and had a late lunch and visited the fish market. This was as amusing as it was interesting as the pelicans and sea lions were all looking for a free meal.
The next morning we took a guide, compulsory when one enters a National Park, to Los Gemelos and El Chato.
After we returned to Puerto Ayora and had lunch we took a water taxi to the eastern side of the harbour and walked to Playa de los Alemanes (German Beach).
So ended another eventful day. The following day we visited the Darwin Centre
Next morning it was an early departure from the port for our 2.5 hour boat journey to Isla Isabela. Coming soon
