It is a marvellous colonial building dating back to the foundation of Quito, and has been beautifully and meticulously restored.

Day 04: Snorkelling in the Pacific Ocean and highland hike
In the morning you do a boat trip to the famous rock of „ Leon Dormido“ which is located offshore of San Cristobal.

Day 05: Santa Cruz Island
Early morning embarkation in your fast motorboat. On Your way to Santa Cruz you stop by the Santa Fe (Barrington) Island. This island, according to the latest geological studies, shows the islands’ oldest rocks. The small bay on Santa Fe's northern coast provides one of the most picturesque anchorages within the archipelago. Here you have the opportunity to explore the diverse underwater world in company of the many sea lions. Back to the ship you continue your journey to Santa Cruz Island, where you will stay in the Red Mangrove Inn. In the afternoon you hike through wide dry forest with its many Cacti to the Beach Tortuga (Turtle) where you can observe the many seabirds. B/L/D

Day 06: Santa Cruz/Station Charles Darwin - Highlands
Santa Cruz is the second largest island in the Galapagos. The small town of Puerto Ayora is the economic centre of the archipelago, with the largest population of the 4 inhabited islands (approx 10.000). Santa Cruz is also the only island where six different zones of vegetation can be seen: Coastal, Arid, Transition, Scalesia, Miconia, and Pampa Zones. The Charles Darwin Research Station and the Galapagos National Park offices are based here. The station is also a tortoise breeding and rearing centre, where tortoises of different subspecies are prepared for reintroduction to their natural habitats. The most popular inhabitant of this island will probably be Lonesome George. He is the only survivor of the specific turtle species. The lush greenery of the Santa Cruz highlands is a welcome contrast with the arid scenery of the smaller, lower islands. Points of interest are the famed lava tunnels, a fun and geologically informative visit. The trip to the highlands ends with a visit to the Twin Craters. The vegetation around these is very special and is renown for its about 300 fern species and the many Scalesia trees. Overnight in the Red Mangrove Inn. B/L/D
