We visited this Galapagos tortoise breeding center the day before we embarked on a yacht cruise of the Islands. Glad we visited, as it was a good introduction to the tortoises and how they have adapted to the environment. It was very interesting to see them at the various stages of their life.

Fabulous facility, doing an awesome job of increasing the tortoise population. Just a massive shame that it isn't a few km further up the hill where the grass is greener and generally more pleasant. If this is your only opportunity to see giant tortoises, it is a must do. If you have an opportunity to see one of the ranches on Santa Cruz with wild tortoises roaming in natural habitat, this will be a disappointment. This isn't negative, just honest.

An interesting and informative breeding center. I learned a lot and it was a fun afternoon activity.

Another nice surprise on the island. I may like this more than the turtle rearing center on Santa Cruz. I think that more of the grounds look like the wilds and it is nice to see these gentle giants in a more natural looking habitat.

Th galapaguera is a great place to see these amazing animals in their real environment not behind concrete walls. Informative on the breeding process as well.
