*Spanglish is an acronym for "barges" that were sunk offshore during World War II. This is a popular landing spot. There's a lovely swimming beach with a lagoon behind and a longer beach that can be used for wildlife watching and walking. There are often great blue herons in the saltwater lagoon behind, as well as small waders like semi-palmated and plovers. Both beaches are great nesting places for green sea turtles. They leave footprints in the sand at the beach's back, particularly from November through February. There is plenty of space to explore the beach at your leisure.

Day 3: Rabida Island & Bartolome Island

Rabida Island

Breakfast service. Dry landing. Rabida Island Nature Walk Deep-water snorkeling
Rabida Island's unique feature is its extraordinary red color. This is due to the high level of oxidized iron found in the lava. We will see nine types of finches here, along with large-billed flycatchers (large-billed flycatchers) and brown pelicans. A small salt-water lagoon is available where you can see greater Flamingos and a colony of sealions.

Bartolome Island

Lunch service. Deep-water snorkeling. Bartolome. Dry landing Nature walks This is the most photographed and visited island in Galapagos. It has very few plants. It is home to an extinct volcano as well as a variety red, orange and green volcanic formations. Pinnacle rock, also known as the Tuff Cone, is one of the most well-known features on the island. This large, black, partially eroded lava form was formed when magma from the volcano reached sea level. The seawaters cool the hot lava and cause an explosion. The fragments that exploded eventually fuse together to form a rock made of thin layers. Pinnacle Rock, Bartolome's most famous and photographed landmark in the islands. It was a prominent landmark that served as a target for US Airmen during WWII. The Pinnacle Rock is surrounded by twin beaches of half-moon shape.
Visitors can swim with fish, Sea Lions, and Galapagos Penguins at the northern beach. You will also find stingrays and spotted eagle Rays as well as white-tipped sharks and black-tipped Sharks near the southern shore. This barren area is home to very little vegetation. The beach is surrounded by mangroves, and the tiny shrub Tiguilia thrives in the volcanic sands. The tiny, white Chamaesycae flowers and seeds provide food for the island’s finch. These plants can survive in harsh volcanic environments and are common in arid areas.
