Nov 07, 2017 - National Geographic Endeavour II
Santa Cruz is the second largest island in the Galapagos Archipelago. In its geological middle ages its coastline has given way to wide harbors and long sandy beaches. Its southern shore is home to Puerto Ayora, the largest human settlement on the islands and where the National Park and Charles Darwin Station Headquarters are located. We visited the town and the Giant Tortoise Rearing Center during the morning and a small family run farm in our way to lunch on the highlands. During the afternoon we visited a giant tortoise reserve before heading back to shore.
