Santa Fe Island - Galapagos

Santa Fe Island - GalapagosSanta Fe Island - GalapagosHome to one of the most beautiful coves in all the Galapagos, Santa Fe is located in the southeastern part of Galapagos, 2 1/2 hours from Santa Cruz and 3 hours from San Cristobal . Santa Fe was formed from an uplift (rather than a volcano) giving the island a relatively flat surface rather than the typical conical shape of the other islands.

Goats were eradicated in 1971, and Santa Fe is home to a number of endemic species, which have bounced back from the outside threat. They include the Galapagos Hawk, Galapagos Snake, Rice Rats, a variety of Finches and the Galapagos Mockingbird.

Visits to Santa Fe begin with a panga ride across the lovely turquoise lagoon. Once ashore there are two trails starting from the same point, offering very different experiences.

Santa Fe Island - GalapagosThe first is a short hike leading to a forest of Prickly Pear Cactus . The trail leas out along the coast into the Opuntia Forest. A member of the cactus family their name comes from the pear shaped fruit the plant produces. Santa Fe's trees are the largest in the Galapagos.

The second trail also starts at the beach, but heads the opposite direction. Hiking up a steep cliff side it is possible to see the endemic Land Iguanas . These iguanas are the largest in the island and their golden color is similar to the cactus fruit they eat. The path continues past the iguanas to the top of the cliff where there is a breathtaking view of the cove below. Once back at the beach there is normally plenty of free time to snorkel back in the lagoon. Playful Sea Lion pups and florescent fish make for fascinating company. Or visit a submerged rock where several Manta Rays and Marine Turtles can be found.
