OK so we saw turtles and fish (and also sea lions but already in Galapagos for a few hours so sea lions no big deal). Nice small walk to get there. Saw lizards and birds en-route. We used this trip to get used to snorkelling...More

I really enjoy walking, but this road looked a little too long and a little to narrow to me to enjoy the walk. Recommend a $3x2 taxi is a good investment for a fantastic nature experience. The beach has a Nat'l Park hanging rack for...More
