The largest crater on Santa Cruz is located on the property as well as the ‘cerro’ which has an extraordinary viewpoint where you are rewarded with a 360 degree view of the island of Santa Cruz. This tour can be combined with a trip to Garrapatero Beach and el Trapiche to make it a full day excursion.

"Just got back from a 12-day trip to the Galapagos arranged thru Galapagos Alternative and everything was exceptional. From the tours, to the transfers, flights, and most importantly the people... everything was smooth. Highly recommend it!"
