We visited the inner islands of Santiago, Rabida, Isabela, Santa Cruz, North Seymour, San Cristobal and Bartolome. We enjoyed leisurely walks, hikes, shorkeling, swimming, visits to the Interpretation Center, the Charles Darwin Station and Giant Tortoise Breeding Center.
You had to be sure-footed to walk on some of the uneven surfaces. We were always accompanied by guides who spoke excellent English and were very knowledgeable about the flora, fauna and history of the islands.
