Thoroughly enjoyed our 2 hour walk here. The Orange land iguanas were fascinating to watch. They appeared on the track in front of us and were not disturbed by our presence at all. The walk to the top is not far at all. Great views.

All of the Galapagos sights are pretty fantastic, since most of them offer one of a kind animals. Yes, there are iguanas all over the world, but not the same ones as you'll find here. It's quite interesting to see the differences, even from island...More

Located in the northwest of Santa Cruz Island, Dragon Hill is known for its land iguanas and flamingos in a nearby lagoon. The landscape is filled with low brush, cacti, and few tall trees. Along the way, we also saw lots of marine iguanas and...More
