Cruises from Puerto Ayora
Puerto Ayora is on the island of Santa Cruz centrally located in the Galapagos Archipelago of Ecuador. While small enough to explore by foot, there are taxis to assist with travel. There are also water taxis that enable visitors to look out for dolphins, whales and sharks, while they are surrounded by playful sea lions. Most tourism is concentrated along the waterfront where there is a range of restaurants and stores.
Many even try some scuba diving, but being home to the Galapagos National Park, the Darwin Foundation and the Charles Darwin Research Station, there is much more to investigate.
