  • Then walk 2.5 Km from a paved road (which not is can ignore) one takes to a wonderful beach with a lot of movement of waves. This first beach there is a fenced area where you can see a few falmingos. I recommend not staying there, but go the beach towards the North, until you reach some stones. The iguanas resting will tell you you're going in the right direction. Passing an outgoing the water of sea is again quiet and is appreciates, without the foam of the waves, its beautiful color Turquoise. It is there where you can enjoy more. There are fish and krill, you can snorkel. There are Palm trees to rest in its shade, timber structures to hang things and "caretakers" of the Galapagos National Park warn you near the 17horas that there to evacuate the beach. Not I could go there when the iguanas are in reproductive cycle. You pay a value by going to the start of the path.

  • Galapagos is an archipelago, in which, if you are looking for tourism with many natural contact, is ideal. Upon arrival, the airport presents a wild super target, but going on the island, walk-in really hundreds of turtles and reptiles from all sides. The beach is beautiful, but not as catalogaria as one of its main attractions
