Roundtrip Guayaquil, Ecuador

400x300-wyndham-guayaquil.jpg

DAY 1

Guayaquil / Arrival
Welcome to Ecuador! Begin your journey in this port city known as the gateway to the Pacific. Your first stop is Wyndham Guayaquil, voted the #1 Hotel in Guayaquil on TripAdvisor and where you’ll stay the night. This dazzling riverside hotel is a short walk to the vibrant Malecon 2000 boardwalk as well as historic Santa Ana Hill and its famous lighthouse. Explore the city sights on your own, relax at the rooftop pool, and get a good night’s rest before your adventure.
400x300_GAL_Itin_Day-10-Disembarkation.png

DAY 2

Guayaquil / Isla Baltra – Embarkation / Isla Seymour Norte
Up and at ‘em. Get an early start and travel to the legendary Galapagos Islands—UNESCO World Heritage Site. From Guayaquil, fly to Isla Baltra where your captain and crew welcome you aboard Yacht La Pinta. As Charles Darwin certainly was in 1835, you’ll be awed by the unique beauty of the islands as you take your first exploratory steps on Isla Seymour Norte—home to Blue-footed boobies and Magnificent Frigatebirds. Formed by volcanic uplift, the small island of scruffy vegetation is ideal nesting terrain. Get an up-close view of these birds’ quirky characteristics by hike and panga ride.
400x300_GAL_ExpGuide_What-to-see-do-IN-THE-WATER.png

DAY 3

Isla Isabela / Isla Fernandina
Explore Punta Vicente Roca, a marine site of impressive geological formations, by panga—your guide helps with decoding the visible clues of the islands’ fiery beginnings. Beyond the geology, spy winged residents including Blue-footed boobies and flightless cormorants. The wildly rocky coast with a partially sunken cave provides phenomenal conditions for a menagerie of fish and green sea turtles. If conditions allow, don your mask, fins, and snorkel and dive in for a close-up view! Later, stretch your legs on a guided walk experiencing one of the most pristine islands in the Galapagos, Isla Fernandina. The island’s active volcano erupted as recently as 2009. Thousands of bright land iguanas reside here, and it’s also a favorite haunt of Galapagos penguins.
400x300_GAL_ExpGuide_What-to-see-do-ON-LAND.png

DAY 4

Isla Isabela
Large in landmass and young at 1 million years old, Isla Isabela supports abundant wildlife and sea life. An Urbina Bay shore walk reveals large, colorful land iguanas and perhaps giant tortoises. Crossing from Urbina Bay to Tagus Cove, scan the water for whales and dolphins that frequent Bolivar Channel from one of La Pinta’s spacious decks. At Tagus Cove—an otherworldly landscape of eroded tuff cones—there’s a chance to snorkel, kayak, or ride a panga before hiking the backside of Darwin Crater to a saltwater lake. There’ll be excellent opportunities for viewing penguins, Galapagos Hawks, cormorants, petrified rain (bits of lava that cooled quickly after contacting water), and old signatures from pirates and whalers etched into the rock.
400x300_GAL_Ports_Baltra.png

DAY 5

Isla Rabida / Isla Santa Cruz
Isla Rabida’s unusual red beach is a favorite sunbathing spot for sea lions and marine iguanas. Go eye-to-eye with Blue-footed and Nazca Boobies, Yellow Warblers, several species of Darwin’s Finches, and pelicans. The warm maroon-colored beach also makes a great jumping in spot for from-the-beach snorkeling. Or keep your eyes above the waterline, inspecting marine life from the glass-bottom boat. You’ll have a birds-eye view from Isla Santa Cruz hiking Cerro Dragon—or, Dragon Hill—and enjoy a well-earned panorama of the western islands, the bay below you, and possibly even lounging land iguanas.
400x300_GAL_ExpGuide_Wildlife-Land-Animals.png

DAY 6

Isla Santa Cruz
Today, it’s all about the magnificent giant tortoise. Touring the Charles Darwin Research Station, you’ll witness the exceptional conservation program where baby tortoises, “galapaguitos,” are reared in protective captivity until they are old enough to safely repatriate back to their native areas. Embrace Galapagos conservation by learning about threats that still endanger this fragile ecosystem. After a lingering poolside lunch at the Finch Bay Eco Hotel (bring your swimsuit just in case), explore the misty, forested highlands and see the lumbering and charming tortoises in their natural habitat. You’ll also have a chance to walk inside the island’s famed lava tubes for a geological exploration of these remarkable volcanic channels.
400x300_GAL_Ports_Genovesa.png

DAY 7

Isla Floreana
Your day will be chock-full of adventure, with opportunities to snorkel, hike, kayak, skiff, ride the glass-bottom boat, or simply relax on the beach. Send a note home from Post Office Bay, dropping your postcard in Isla Floreana’s famous, historic barrel mailbox. Then take in the island’s geologic history with a panga ride or kayak investigation of its maze of volcanic channels. A stop at Baroness Viewpoint provides the perfect vantage for a photo-op. A tale of two beaches, walk along the green olivine beach of Punta Cormorant to a brackish lagoon known to be a flamingo hideout, then on to a white-sand beach where green sea turtles come ashore to rest at night.
400x300_GAL_Itin_Day-3-Quito-Isla-San-Cristobal.png

DAY 8

Isla Baltra / Guayaquil – Disembarkation
Your adventure of a lifetime aboard La Pinta concludes back on Isla Baltra. From here, transfer to the airport for your flight to Guayaquil—where you’ll await your connecting flight home, or if you’ve opted for our Machu Picchu extension, your flight to Lima, Peru.

400x300_GAL_Ports_santaCruz.png

Isla Santa Cruz

The second largest by land size and largest by population, Isla Santa Cruz is geographically located in the center of all the other islands. Known for its giant tortoise populations, the island has seen much change from the influence of its human inhabitants and has become a nucleus for conservation efforts.

One of the results of human development and change can be seen at the impressive Charles Darwin Research Center and Fausto Llerena Tortoise Center. In the 1960s, it was discovered that only 14 of the Española giant tortoises remained. In an effort to protect and save these and the other species of Galápagos giant tortoises, the centers’ piloted an incredible conservation program. Since, they have successfully raised and released several thousand of these wondrous and magnificent creatures safely back to their native islands.

The giant tortoises can be observed at the Tortoise Center and also in their natural habitat. Renowned for its lava tubes, Santa Cruz has several diverse zones from the dry, volcanic coastal zone to the misty, forested highlands where lumbering tortoises can be seen. In addition to the tortoise, Santa Cruz and its coastal islets are home to blue-footed boobies, reef sharks, Galápagos penguins, rainbow-colored sally lightfoot crabs, and frigatebirds. The marvelous hiking on land is matched only by the fantastic snorkeling and diving in the water.

400x300_GAL_Ports_Baltra.png

Isla Baltra

A small island off the north coast of Isla Santa Cruz, Baltra was a U.S. Air Force Base during World War II and today is both an Ecuadorean military base and the location of the mainland airport. Palo Santo trees, prickly pear cactus, and saltbush vegetate this small island, home to frigatebirds and boobies. Isla Baltra is also the location of an active conservation program to reintroduce the Galápagos Land Iguana back to the island.

blue-footed-boobie.jpg

Isla Seymour Norte

A beautiful, flat island, brushy Isla Seymour Norte is located near Isla Baltra, and like its neighbour, was created by the uplift of a submarine lava formation. The island boasts a large population of blue-footed boobies, swallow-tailed gulls, sea lions and land iguanas. It also is home to one of the largest populations of frigate birds. Nazca boobies and pelicans are also frequently seen on the island. Unique to Isla Seymour Norte, cliffs located only a few feet from the shoreline are a big attractant for the islands large populations of birds, as is its small forest of palo santo trees.

400x300_GAL_ExpGuide_Wildlife-Birds.png

Isla Isabela

One of the younger islands in the Galápagos and the largest island with an area of 1,792 square miles, Isla Isabela was formed by six shield volcanos. The dramatic geologic origins of this island can be easily seen—remains of lava flows and tuff stone layers are readily visible. Once a favorite stopping point for pirates, this seahorse-shaped island—also known as Albemarle—was officially named in honour of Queen Isabela. There is abundant wildlife on and around Isabela. The cliffs that stretch deep into the water are prime habitat for green sea turtles and several species of whales ply the waters of Bolívar Channel. On land, the wild menagerie includes Galápagos penguins, flightless cormorants, marine iguanas, pelicans, Sally Lightfoot crabs, colourful land iguanas, Darwin finches, Galápagos hawks, Galápagos doves and the huge Galápagos tortoises.

400x300_GAL_Itin_Day-7-Sombrero-Chino.png

Isla Fernandina

Officially the youngest island, and the most pristine in the archipelago, Isla Fernandina was named in honour of King Ferdinand II who sponsored Columbus’s voyage. At about 1 million years old, Fernandina is still volcanically active—the steeps of the volcano provide astounding views of the landscape—with the most recent eruption occurring in 2009. The landscape of the island has visibly changed since European discovery with the relatively frequent volcanic activity. In addition to its evolving landscape, Isla Fernandina also sits in a unique position within the ocean. Cold waters of the Cromwell Current hit the archipelago from the west, and this western most island reaps the benefits. The cold upwelling of water is a boon for marine life, particularly flightless cormorants and Galápagos penquins. Fernandina hosts hundreds of marine iguanas who sun themselves on black lava rocks and Galápagos hawks, pelicans, and sea lions are all abundant here.

570x428_Galapagos-Slideshow.png

Isla Rabida

Small and arid, Isla Rábida has a fantastic, intriguing volcanic landscape. Steep slopes of the craters reach down to a wide reaching beach colored a startling, unexpected maroon. Rich in iron, Rábida is distinctively red from its sand to its old lava flows. Along the beach, marine iguanas, mockingbirds, and yellow warblers and can be observed going about their daily business. Brown pelicans, blue-footed boobies and Nazca boobies are also found in salt brush and cliffs behind the beach. Inland among cacti, palo santo trees and scrubby brush Galápagos doves, and several species of Darwin’s finches can be found.

400x300_GAL_ExpGuide_Wildlife-Marine-Animals.png

Isla Floreana

The first post office in the islands was established on Isla Floreana in the 1790s by whalers—and the historic barrel that has served as the archipelago’s post office for over two centuries is still in use today. The island has an interesting human history, including several intriguing mysteries of prominent settlers who went missing. First colonized by Ecuadorian’s in the mid-1800s, Floreana’s current human population are predominantly farmers.

Located at the southern end of the archipelago, Isla Floreana’s prominent high-point is an extinct volcano that reaches to about 2,100’. One of the islands most unique locations, Punta Cormorant is host to a wide range of species. On one side of Punta Cormorant, pintail ducks, stilts, large-billed flycatchers, several species of finch, and many other shorebirds can be seen on a green olivine-crystal beach—including greater flamingos who hideout at a brackish lagoon behind the beach. On the other side of the point, a white sand coral beach is nesting grounds for green sea turtles. In addition to turtles and birds, Isla Floreana’s islets and sunken craters are vital habitat for marine life including color fish, several species of shark, and eels.
