Morning: Explore the sandy streets of the small town of Villamil or stroll along the tropical beach. Put on your bathing suit because by mid-morning we’re heading to the iconic Los Túneles Cabo Rosa, one of the world’s most beautiful snorkeling spots. Picture pitch-black, tunnel-like, lava formations with cacti and rough vegetation on top. The main motive we want to share this place with you is the absolute abundance of Galapagos quintessential land and aquatic species. Blue-footed and Nazca boobies, pelicans, and sometimes sea lions keep each other company on the rocks.
Afternoon: We always wonder who’s more curious during this snorkel experience: us gazing at the exceptional wildlife, or the sea turtles approaching us, seemingly thinking we’re just as fascinating. Other friendly aquatic animals are Galapagos penguins, sea lions, marine iguanas, seahorses, eagle and manta rays, white-tipped sharks, and more. Every so often, playful dolphins and killer whales greet us on the boat ride back. We’ll be back at Isabela Island in the late afternoon.
Evening: The night is yours, but we think this might just be the perfect night to watch the sunset at Concha de Perla Beach since it’s only a short walk away from the port you just arrived.
Meals included: Breakfast, snack, and lunch
About the snorkel: The waters are calm and shallow, an ideal snorkel experience for beginners and even kids
