Overnight: M/Y Eric, Flamingo, or Letty
Meet at the Quito or Guayaquil airport for your flight to Galapagos 1½ hours prior to your scheduled flight time.
Upon arrival to Puerto Baquerizo Moreno, San Cristobal Island, our crew is waiting at the airport to escort you to your anchored yacht. After the welcome briefing, buffet lunch and safety drill, travel by bus into the interior of San Cristobal to visit La Galapaguera Cerro Colorado, where the National Park has established a breeding program for tortoises and set up an information center for visitors.
Along the trail, find the San Cristobal (Chatham) mockingbird and Calandrinia plant, both endemic to this island. Here, see the terrestrial tortoises living in their natural habitat but also learn about their origin, evolution and threats by introduced animals.
