Santa Fe will first provide an iconic Galapagos experience. Kayak around a quiet bay, as sea turtles and sea lions cruise past your paddle. Or choose a glass-bottomed boat for similar close-up encounters.
Dock at the beach and admire the sea lions. Mothers nurse their babies, scenes of charm that impress from all angles. Some members of this sea lion harem will waddle over to you, inquisitive and intrigued by your presence.
Complement these activities with a safari in search of an endemic character. You can’t find the Sante Fe iguana anywhere other than Santa Fe. And it’s so well camouflaged you can easily miss its enormous frame.
