Snorkeling in Concha Perla
The heart of the Galapagos Archipelago is Santa Cruz Island, it is a magical place, with endemic forests, where giant tortoises roam freely, where your experience of nature is combined with the friendliness of its people.
Isabela Island is the largest of Galapagos, formed by 6 large active volcanoes, the last eruption occurred in 2015, has a population of 3,000 inhabitants and a great diversity of animals and unique landscapes.
The Lava Tunnels are approximately 1km apart, these form when the surface layer of the lava flow cools on contact with cooler atmospheric air.
The transparency of the water allows snorkeling to be one of the favorite activities of tourists. The places where you can practice this activity are: Playa de la Estación, Playa de Tortuga Bay, Playa de los Alemanes, Las Grietas, Bachas, Pinzón, among others.
It is the largest of the species of tortoises living today. It is also one of the longest-living animals known, with an average age of over 150 years. Giant tortoises are vegetarian, feeding on cacti, grasses, leaves, and berries, and can survive for months without food or water.
It is a very playful and curious animal that spends most of the day sleeping in the sun, feeds on fish at night and can spend up to 10 minutes underwater.
Also known locally as “Tintorera” (Triaenodon obesus) is one of the most common sharks in the tourist sites. It is the only shark that is able to stop swimming without dying, perhaps because it is the only member of his genus. This shark is normally considered inoffensive, since is more active at night and is very selective about their preys: reef fish. The round head and the white tips on the back and tail fins made it easy to recognize.
