Arrival at Baltra Airport
This islet is one of most visited sites, and it is teeming with birdlife. An easy circular path takes you through the archipelago’s most extensive colonies of blue-footed boobies and frigate birds.
Despite its small size, some of the most interesting and outstanding species of the Galapagos are found here.There are several hybrid iguanas- a result of crossing a male marine iguana and a female land iguana.
Santa Fe is home to a number of endemic species like the Galapagos Hawk, Galapagos snake, Galapagos mockingbird, rice rats and one of the two species of lands iguanas of the islands.
This is where biological research and indispensable conservation management of this unique archipelago are carried out. The most memorable part of your visit will probably be the successful breeding centre and the enclosures with Galapagos giant tortoises.
