Santa Cruz Island
Welcome to our home town!!! Santa Cruz has the largest population center in Galapagos and has a broad array of activities for everyone.
The island has a unique charm with its busy streets full of white pick-up truck taxis and pedestrians converging at the pier in the heart of Puerto Ayora. Within walking distance of Puerto Ayora are an amazing assortment of local restaurants that feature Ecuadorian and international cuisine. Several fine restaurants and attractions are accessible by water taxi across the harbor.
Travel up into the highlands to experience another flavor of the local culture. Inhabitants of this lush and fertile area rely on the earth in much the same way that the port city depends on the sea. We welcome you to explore this area and the many hidden treasures it possesses.
