Sierra Negra Volcano

The Sierra Negra volcano is the largest and one of the most active of the Islands. Its northern flank is usually covered with clouds and fog, which allows the growth of vegetation. This area is the site of two of the oldest human settlements in the Galapagos, Puerto Villamil, on the coast, and Santo Tomás, located 20 kilometers inland in the highlands.

This volcano also has one of the largest boilers in the world. Once you reach the edge of the crater of the volcano, you can descend on foot to the fumaroles located at the bottom of the Sierra Negra caldera.

The Tunnels

Los Túneles is one of the best places for surface diving because its waters are calm, clear and shallow. This is a unique site thanks to its wonderful geological formations, since the lava flows have formed a large number of arches or tunnels, in and out of the water, where several species of the marine fauna of the Enchanted Islands are sheltered.

Upon arrival there are certain low that usually have strong waves mainly from June to December, so it is not always feasible to enter Los Túneles.

Wall of Tears

This is a historical site of Isabela because during the years 1946 to 1959 there was a penal colony on this island, during which to punish the prisoners they were forced to build a wall with huge blocks of lava that is about 100 meters long. 7 meters high.

You can reach the upper part of the Wall of Tears through a staircase, from where you can have a panoramic view of the place. In the place you can still see the concrete bases where the Americans had their wooden houses in World War II.

In the Tagus Cove, pirates and whalers who arrived at the place inscribed the names of their boats on the stones to leave the trace of their passage through Caleta Tagus.

In the place, from the beginning of the route, you can see inscriptions dating from 1800. Caleta Tagus owes its name to an English warship that in 1814 passed through the islands to hunt Galapagos tortoises in order to feed.

Pearl shell

Concha de Perla is the ideal place to practice sports such as swimming or diving. It is a bay with shallow, calm and transparent water that allows you to observe the fascinating Galápagos marine fauna and you can swim with sea lions and penguins, something that can not be experienced in any other tropical area of ​​the world.

Islet of the Tintoreras

Las Tintoreras, located 10 minutes by boat from Puerto Villamil, is a small rocky islet. So called because there is a crack of lava with calm and transparent water where white tip fin sharks, called "tintoreras", tend to rest and which can be easily seen in the mornings and afternoons. On the vertical walls of the cracks and the small turquoise lagoon of the interior dozens of baby marine iguanas heat their bodies with the morning sun.

Review Information

Galapagos Islands

Extraordinary flora and fauna, a place you must visit...!

Galapagos Islands are worldwide known for their wide biodiversity and for being the point from where Charles Darwin developed the theory of evolution.We present you 5 facts that perhaps you didn't know about the Enchanted Islands.

The term "Enchanted islands" first appeared on a map in 1589.Sailors nicknamed thus to the Galapagos Islands, by referring to these "appeared and disappeared", since due to the sea currents strong, access to the Islands was limited at certain times of the year. The nickname transcended over the years and today is still saying that the Islands are "delighted", but referring now to the great biodiversity of flora and fauna.

The Galapagos marine iguana, is the only species of reptile in the world that has managed to adapt to life under water.

The Islands are named for the giant tortoises that live there (the Galapagos word meaning turtle). This species can reach up to 16 hours a day to sleep and mainly feeds on cacti that grow there.

In keeping with the turtles, originally there were 15 species of giant tortoises in the Galapagos, unfortunately 5 of them are completely extinct, so there are only 10. The main threat of the turtles is the human being, who for years has been dedicated to hunting them for their meat and oil.

The Galapagos Islands were part of the second world war! During this war, the Government of Ecuador allowed the United States Government build a runway with strategic aims in the Islands.When the war ended, the Americans abandoned the place. That track currently serves as the main airport of the Islands, which welcomes the year thousands of passengers.
