  • The breeding Center seemed like a very nice space that can be accessed by a wooden footbridge that crosses a pond with flamingos. Then a few paths to the Center where bred turtles in danger of extinction. Animals of different ages can be seen, and the information is very clear. Darwin puerto ayora I liked much more than the research station. Super recommended. Try to go with sunshade or a cloudy day.

  • Quiet Center where you can view the turtles, from very small to very large. Even the eggs you can admire.

  • Liked the San Cristóbal Galapaguera better, but it was great to see the giant turtles again. The way to the place is incredible though, flamingos and lava lizards all the way through.
  • In this place you can learn a lot about how human interaction is affecting the population of the different species of giant tortoises in the Galapagos Islands and what the National Park is doing to prevent the extinction of this amazing animals
  • Good place to spend a short amount of time, interesting and fun to watch how turtles grow.
  • Not bad for a free walk around to see the tortoises and learn a few things.
  • Well look after and very impressive way they look after Local fauna
