We had an amazing day on Santa Cruz Island. We started the morning with a stretching class led by our wellness specialist, Diana. After breakfast, we went to the giant tortoise breeding center, and we learned about conservation efforts to preserve the islands. We visited the fish market before we went to El Trapiche Ecologico, an old-fashioned farm that is reminiscent of the first farms on the islands. We learned about the processes for making coffee, chocolate, and sugar. We continued our adventure at Manzanillo Ranch, where we walked amongst the giants of the Galapagos. We observed dozens of tortoises. We had plenty of fun today, and we cannot wait for another magical experience in the archipelago.
