We spent the morning exploring Urbina Bay, halfway down the western coast of Isabela Island. This is the favored home for land iguanas and giant tortoises—not to mention the tremendous array of flora and bird species!
In the afternoon we explored Tagus Cove, the very place where the first explorers arrived to the archipelago. Our group wasted no time getting out on the water. Kayaks, stand-up paddleboards, Zodiacs, snorkeling, we did it all! Afterward, we hiked inland to a view overlooking Darwin Lake, from one of the first eruptive craters formed from early volcanic activity on the Island. This is the place where history, ecology, and leisure come together!
