ITINERARY

Upon arriving at Baltra Island, a guide will be awaiting your arrival to assist you to cross to Santa Cruz and visit the highlands. You will stop at the impressive Twin Craters known as “Los Gemelos”.

In the afternoon, a special chocolate tasting experience is planned for you. During the 60-minute activity, you will learn all about the Ecuador and Galapagos cacao and their differences, how farming began in the Galapagos and methods of how the cacao is processed. You will also have the opportunity to become an artisan chocolatier, learning all the tempering methods and art of making delicious chocolates.

In the morning you will visit Las Grietas. To arrive, take a trail past Playa Aleman, brackish lagoons, and you’ll reach the top of the grietas. The enormous crevice allows for an amazing opportunity to snorkel deep into the cracks and fissures between the two tall walls. After lunch at a local restaurant, you will visit Tortuga Bay. This is voted one of the most spectacular and beautiful beaches in the Galapagos. Walking there is part of the experience as you pass arid forests full of giant cacti sprouting yellow flowers. Finches, yellow warblers and lava lizards will cross your path along the paved trail. Swimming here is a great experience, but be mindful of strong undertows. The waves are perfect for surf lessons.
