Itinerary 4 Days B

Day 1: San Cristobal Island: Galapaguerra & Cerro Colorado
On departure from Quito Airport, a US$20 per-person transit card and a US$100 national park entry fee are payable. These transactions can be complicated and time-consuming so please have cash available. The National Park Guide will meet you at the airport and transfer you to the Queen Beatriz catamaran.

Galapaguerra & Cerro Colorado

Today you will travel to the interior of the island and visit the highlands site of Galapaguera of Cerro Colorado (Red Hill), where the national park has established an information center and breeding program for tortoises. We will see giant tortoises living in their natural habitat, and learn about their evolution, history, and future.
Day 2: Bartolome Island & Santiago Island: Sullivan Bay

Bartolome Island

Bartolome, an archipelago island that is relatively new, can still be seen traces of its volcanic past as shown by the incredible lunar-like landscape.
One of the most photographed spots in Galapagos is the Pinnacle Rock. It's an abrupt jag made of rock that protrudes from the ground like a tooth. Two golden bays are nearby and back onto one another.

Santiago Island: Sullivan Bay

Here you can hike up to the summit of a once active volcano and take in spectacular views to Sullivan Bay on Santiago Island.
Day 3: Santiago Island: Espumilla Beach & Egas Port

Espumilla Beach

Today, you'll visit some amazing places. Espumilla Beach is located on Santiago Island's northern coast in James Bay. It is a popular nesting spot for marine turtles and one of the most beautiful locations in the Galapagos Islands. Espumilla beach is well-known for its Palo Santo Forest, and extraordinary lava formations.

You will also be visiting Caleta Bucanero, a natural landmark of sea-eroded rocks. Pirates used this cove to keep their ships safe. This cove is full of legends and stories. Port Egas, a black sand beach on the west coast of James Bay and northwest from Santiago Island is known as Port Egas.

Egas Port

Sugarloaf Volcano is located south of the beach and has volcanic tuff deposits. Puerto Egas is the name of this site, in honor of Hector Egas, who tried to mine salt there last time. You can walk along the beach and see hundreds of Galapagos fur sea-lions, California sea-lions, and marine iguanas.
Day 4: Santa Cruz Island & Baltra Airport
Galapagos flights to the mainland depart in the morning, so it's a good time to get up early for our last day on the islands. This final excursion can be short or long depending on when we fly.
Today, you'll visit Santa Cruz which is the second-largest island in the Galapagos. For a complete change of scenery, you will head to the highlands. You will start at the coast and travel through Santa Cruz's agricultural region to the misty forest. This zone is lush and humid, with miconia bushes, scalesia, and inactive volcano cones. Santa Cruz is home to more endemic plants that any other island. You will likely see Galapagos giant tortoises and possibly even bright red feathers from a vermillion flycatcher in their natural habitat.

This is your last excursion before you head back to Baltra airport for your return flight to Quito. Please remember to tip your guide and crew if you enjoyed their services. We recommend that each passenger tip US$15 per person for the crew, and US$10 per person for their guide. Tips can be left in envelopes and placed in your cabin at the end of your journey.
