On San Cristobal, travelers can explore El Junco Lake, a caldera of an extinct volcano, and maybe even spot nesting colonies of both species of frigate bird. In Cerro Brujo, travelers head to Punta Putt, a tuff formation where many sea birds nest, including all three types of booby. Here, guests can also snorkel. It’s on Santa Cruz where you’ll visit the tortoise reserve at La Primicias, a private farm in the highlands and encounter the giant tortoise. These adventures and more await on this new and unique experience with Abercrombie & Kent and Ecoventura.
