General itinerary for the day

Today you will be picked up at the hotel and taken to the airport. Then you will fly between Santa Cruz and Isabela. Take advantage of the flight and photograph the views above the islands! After arrival in Isabela you will be transfered to your hotel, and after check in you will have a bit of time to get ready for the day. After lunch you will be walking with your local guide from the hotel to the tortoise breeding center, aproximately 2.5 km per way. As you get into the wooden path over the wetlands, you might see some of the coastal bird species that migrate, and live permanently in Galapagos, and maybe with luck, also flamingos. In the tortoise breeding center you will be explained what is done there to restore tortoises populations, and then you have time to walk back to the hotel the same way, maybe taking some more shots from what is there to see.
