Encounter a myriad of wildlife at Las Plazas, where marine and land iguanas, swallow-tailed gulls, frigatebirds and brown pelicans can be glimpsed.

Day 7 Isla Rabida - Isla Santiago

Visit Isla Rabida and learn about the Galapagos's geological gems. As sea lions soak up the sun on the red-sand beach below, and flamingos frolic in the local lagoon, why not kick back and relax too? With hiking, swimming and snorkelling opportunities, there's every chance to mix with the locals.

Day 10 Quito

Head back to the bubbly city of Quito and perhaps end this Galapagos adventure with an anise flavoured mistela, a drink unique to the city.
