Las Grits is absolutely incredible - 8 of us went together and it is beautiful and so much fun - the water is a little bit chilly so be prepared and I would recommend wearing dive booties or tevas because the rocks are sharp, but...More

It only takes a water taxi ride from the main port in Puerto Ayora to the trail that takes you to Las grietas. If you like to walk and enjoy the Galapagos landscape, this is a must. It won't take you more than 10 minutes...More

The water here is crystal clear and flawless. It was a little bit crowded with children and families, which was frustrating since there is only one way to get into the water and I had to wait awhile to get both in and out. I...More

The hike here isn't too bad and can be done on your own without a tour group. It does get a little crowded but that is because of the tours. The key is to swim beyond the first group of rocks.

The hike was interesting, take a water taxi (80 cents each way during daylight hours) from the pier in town to the dock near the Finch Bay hotel and walk about 15-20 minutes. The path passes some hotels, some large homes, a salt marsh and...More

Yes, I did snorkeling here and jump off the pier. I climbed over the sharp volcanic rocks and enjoyed the scenery. The salt pits were cool to see as you make your way from the harbor to the canyon. But, I've seen much better in...More

Perdón por la tardanza. Si tiene horario hasta las seis. Normalmente se va en barca pero se puede acceder andando desde el puerto en Puerto Ayora!
