The flora and fauna in the Galapagos has evolved over time to be able to thrive on each unique ecosystem. Tortoises here are bigger than humans, endemic birds have oddly shaped features and interesting stories, and iguanas can dive below the surface as easily as Galapagos penguins.

Volcanoes & Lava Flows

The Galapagos Islands were formed by volcanic activity and, even to this day, more than half of the volcanoes in the Galapagos are still active! Fernandina Island is the youngest of all the Galapagos Islands and has a rougher texture than the oldest island Espanola.

This protected reserve spans over 3,000 square miles (7,995 km²) and has a strict allowance of visitors per day. Only 1,660 people on boats and 180 on day cruises are allowed in the national park per day. These regulations allow travelers to see the beauty of the Galapagos without disturbing the habitat.

Depending on the island, the sand may have its own distinct color. You may spot red sand beaches, black volcanic sand beaches, or even a green sand beach!
