A lot of tour operators stop here when people land at Baltra and are driving to Peurto Ayora. You walk round two "craters" (not volcanic as such more correctly very large sinkholes) Los Gemelos East and West. Try to avoid other groups and sit/stand very...More

These twin sink hole craters are across the highway from each other. Have your driver wait for you. You can enjoy the gorgeous birds and foliage as you walk around each crater.
