Playa Escondida Fishing/Snorkel CharterPlaya Escondida Charter Tour

Private guided tour

This fishing/snorkeling private charter tour is an excellent way to grab your own slice of the Galapagos. Playa Escondida is a secluded beach that is only accessible when accompanied by a local fisherman. Because of this restriction this beach is rarely occupied by other groups. It has a long white-sand beach with a protected cove that is excelent for snorkeling and swimming. There is also great fishing nearby which means you may have fresh ceviche for lunch if you have had any luck angling. Playa Escondida can also be added to a Santa Fe charter tour if desired.
