Today was monumental in the lives of two biology teachers and twelve passionate students as we were able to walk in the footsteps of Charles Darwin. We grabbed a quick breakfast at 3:30 a.m. and traveled to the Quito Airport, where we experienced a one-hour delay. Students made the most of their time by playing games, drawing, journaling and …
... of the likelihood of seeing hammerhead sharks. It's also a dive not for the faint-hearted, not because of the sharks, but because of the treacherous conditions. We'll find out tomorrow if what they say is true.
Afterwards, we continued down the road out of town towards Charles Darwin Research Station. They had quite a few giant tortoises and land iguanas in enclosures. The animals looked a bit sadder than the captive ones we had seen ...
Today I had to say goodbye to my friends from the first cruise. We were the only family staying on for the next part. After they left, Mum, Dad and I were taken out by ourselves in a panga to explore the coast and then have some time on the beach. We saw a gorgeous baby pelican on the cliffs, as well as lots of different birds and a yellow Sulphur butterfly, and then suddenly we saw all the birds diving to one place in the deeper water. When we went over ...
... leaving a hollow tube. Some lava tubes are only a few feet deep and long, while lava tunnels can be quite large. This one was 1300 feet long and about 30 feet high at one point. Near the end, it dipped down to 2 feet high. We crawled through on our hands and knees through the mud.

TravelPod Member ReviewsHotel Ninfa Puerto Ayora
I saw some rating somewhere that weren't happy with Las Ninfas because they only speak in Spanish. My response to that is uhhh...think about where you are. For the majority of the trip, everybody was fantastic. The guides were great for a majority of the time minus a few quirks here and there, of that being when they talk, they talk in spanish so fast that it is difficult to understand. I do not have a problem with the spanish but they could have spoken a bit slower because there were a lot of people from other countries there. That was my only real complaint. The good wasn't bad at all. The accommodations were worth it. The beaches, the atmosphere, the way they take care of you was really well done and thought out. I would have liked to have seen a few more things like more blue footed boobies but when they sent you off to Florena or Isabella or wherever you go, you are on a good boat with a good captain and they make sure you are safe and if you get sick they take care of you as well. It sure beats the hell out of Royal Palm which costs 300$ per night. Get to the Galapagos. You won't regret it.
