Inspirock Rating:
3.9/5 based on 100+ reviews on the web
Following a short hike at Los Gemelos, you'll have the opportunity to gaze upon the beauty of two ancient lava craters. The trail, which also has a side path, continues for up to 723 m (2,372 ft). It takes you through lush green vegetation, which fills the craters today. Watch for an abundance of tortoises crawling in the craters. Because the path crosses a variety of terrain, be sure to wear good shoes. For travelers who use our world travel planner, Puerto Ayora holidays become easier to arrange, with trips to the Los Gemelos and other attractions mapped out and timetabled.

  • 4 of us shared a taxi for $45 to get here and see the tortugas. We also stopped at Las Grietas and the Lava tunnels and it all was wonderful. Lots of tortugas in a natural setting. 
  • When you put as an activity in your travel itinerary, be agrees that this run to the airport by the same driver who takes you to the airport road is who takes you to the crater and gives you a time so that you can observe and take photos, is very nice and you have a spectacular view, however so many activities that you do in the Galapagos it would put 10 as the activity 9 to perform.

  • Galapagos nature is impressive, the twins is an example of this. they are beautiful, and the climate is temperate, the flora is very different from what you see down on the island. It is beautiful to see all these contrasts, so close.

  • Fascinating area, great to spend a bit of time at, particular when it's foggy.
  • Must see Tortoises and lava tunnels. Have organic coffee at the snack center.
  • Very short walk to giant sink holes. Definitely worth stopping between the airport and Puerto Ayora for a 30 minute visit.
  • Fantastic natural formation
