Isabela Island, Tintoreras and Los Humedales
Enjoy a morning visit to the Tintoreras, an islet formed by lava flows just 10 minutes by dinghy from Puerto Villamil. Its name comes from the white tip reef sharks called in Spanish Tintoreras which are frequently seen in this area, along with marine iguanas and penguins. This area is also perfect for snorkeling. Return to the lodge for lunch and in the afternoon visit Los Humedales. This area is characterised by solitary beaches, lava tunnels, natural pools and estuaries where you can see flamingos. You also visit the turtle breeding centre.

The volcano’s crater is considered the second largest in the world with a diameter of 10kms. Volcan Chico is also an active volcano and sulfur vents can be seen in this area.
