Explore a fishing Village, then off to snorkeling and fun at a beach


Depending on weather conditions we will be able to explore the charming town of Yelapa, and walk to the beautiful waterfall.

Then we will go snorkeling at a natural small cove, close to Majahuitas, where you will be able to spot different birds, such as the peculiar blue-footed booby (thought to inhabit only at the Galapagos Islands) as well as frigate bird, pelicans, herons and many other resident and migratory birds.

Once in the water, you'll observe many types of marine animals interacting with their natural environment. After having enjoyed the water, we will visit Las Animas. This is a popular beach with different restaurants and water activities, or else just to enjoy the beach.
