The largest of the Galapagos Islands, Isabela is one of the most volcanically active places in the world. Whether this is thrilling or terrifying is up to you. It doesn’t seem to bother the iguanas and penguins of Las Tintoreras, a nearby island cluster and popular snorkeling site. Walk from Puerto Villamil through mangrove forests and saltwater lagoons to reach the Tortoise Breeding Center. Isabela was once used as an exile for prisoners, who built the devastating Wall of Tears as part of their punishment.

A lovely zodiac ride through the quiet back channels in this bay. View turtles and rays in the water, and birds on the shore. A lovely, soothing navigation.

After whatever activity we plan for the day, we plan to have a nice swim here following. The clear water slapping on the white sandy beach is totally restful. Any sweat worked up is set free. The iguanas come and go along the edges of the volcanic rocks. At the East end in the sea grasses the area is roped off for the breeding season. We have many super videos of mano y mano arguments and the courtship (however brief) of these wonderful aquatic beauties. Nearer the Iguana Crossing end of the beach hundreds do hang out on the rocks and across the street on the sea walls. As you swim you get scooped by from the pelicans looking for their next meal while the frigate birds hope for a steal. Outstanding place.
