  • Very cool park, excellent for spotting Darwin's finches, frigate birds, lava lizards, yellow warblers and more! Nice hike with amazing look out at the top
  • A lot of questions but no answers here as long as the Ecuadorian government's focus is on making money out of Galápagos mass tourism rather than protecting one of the most valuable and pristine places left on this planet... Establish a proper garbage and eco tourism system first before it's too late for all the animals swimming through plastics! 😔🐙🐢🦀🐬🐠
  • Excellent historical and geologic interpretation of the history of the Galapagos. Beautiful surrounding trails and snorkelling site!
  • Came here as our first stop to San Cristobal with Guiding Galapagos in October 2017. Our naturalist guide took us around the Interpretation Center and talked to us about the information provided which was fascinating. The entire history of the Galapagos for both humans and animals. It is like reading a history book on the island by coming here.
  • Very nice to go when arrive to Galapagos tô get to know the history of the Island
