Tripadvisors tilnærming til anmeldelser
Hver Tripadvisor-anmeldelse går gjennom et automatisert sporingssystem før den legges ut. Dette systemet samler inn informasjon som svarer på følgende spørsmål: Hvordan, hva, hvor og når. Hvis systemet oppdager noe som muligens strider imot retningslinjene våre for fellesskapet, blir anmeldelsen ikke publisert.
Når systemet oppdager et problem, kan en anmeldelse automatisk avvises, sendes til anmelderen for bekreftelse eller gjennomgås manuelt av teamet vårt av innholdsspesialister. Disse spesialistene jobber døgnet rundt for å opprettholde kvaliteten av anmeldelsene på nettstedet vårt.
Teamet vårt sjekker hver anmeldelse som er lagt ut på nettstedet og bestrides av fellesskapet vårt for ikke å møte retningslinjene våre for fellesskapet.

Just beautiful! Gorgeous color and views. Lots of wildlife. Sea lions, iguanas, birds. Really enjoyed our hike with the naturalist. Hesitated on booking this tour, but it was so much more than we expected. Some of our best pictures.

A delightful place. Colorful vegetation and different cacti provide food for land iguanas and lava lizards amidst the small, uplifted lava flows. There is a sea lion nursery and many small tail gulls and yellow warblers. The area looking over the cliff offers views of water crashing the rocks and many bird types. Very enjoyable.

This was one of the smaller islands that we visited in the Galapagos, but there a lot of different animals and birds as well as some stunning seascapes. What we found interesting was how many different species would cluster in the shade of a cactus. You would see a sea lion and an iguana and a swallow tailed full all hanging out together. Our guide was thorough and so we spent two hours on our nature walk. I would recommend a visit to South Plaza Island.

A dry island with attractive cacti, sea lions greeting you, and land iguanas everywhere. Beautiful views of Isla Santa Cruz.

Love this island. The island is quite small but it has a good range of wildlife. There are some really beautiful birds over at the 'far' side of the island

Of the two uninhabited Plaza Islands, South Plaza Island accepts visitors. Located (+ two hours by boat) off the east coast of Santa Cruz Island, it is one of the smallest islands in the archipelago covering an area of 0.13 sq km with a maximum elevation of 23 Meters. It is covered in red Sesuvium, a ground vegetation which changes color from green in the wet season. Very flat but with an incredibly rough terrain, we walked across this island - rated intermediate level! If you have access to a walking pole, take one. The Island has a dry landing.

Mostly land iguanas are found here but South Plaza is also the only island where the hybrid Galapagos iguana is found. Bird species are plentiful and include the Nazca, Blue footed Boobies, swallow-tailed gulls and red-billed tropicbirds. We saw hundreds of birds flying near the cliffs, including pelicans and some smaller varieties trying to land in the wind, one I watched must have made a dozen attempts to land and kept missing.

Rejoining our boat, which had to stay some distance from the coastline as there is a large amount of submerged volcanic rock which I could see (when snorkling later in a lovely sheltered cove) very close to our feet but we’d been told not to touch it as lots of barnacles which are very sharp.

Our Boat then cruised along northern side of Santa Cruz (which is always clear) up the coast, passed several small beaches and left us at top of Santa Cruz and we took a bus the 42 km back to Puerto Aroyo (nearest town to our hotel) on an almost dead straight road.

fiz o tour à South Plaza Island, conjugado com Santa Fe Island. a saída se dá pelo Canal de Baltra. e de lá, são aproximadamente 45min. / 1h navegando até a South Plaza. ela é uma pequena ilha, a qual é possível aportar em um pequeno molhe, e fazer uma bela caminhada ao seu redor (obrigatoriamente você e seu grupo estarão com guia). visualização de muitas iguanas terrestres (presenciei algo incrível, iguanas literalmente pulando, saltando, para alcançar as flores dos cactus (alimento). por sinal, belíssimos pés de cactus envolvem a ilha. você irá avistar leões marinhos, aves, e paredões incríveis da ilha de Baltra, que está ao seu lado. a água do mar, nem preciso dizer, é cristalina. conhecer esse lugar vale muito, mas muito a pena. fiz o tour com a NatureGalapagos. e recomendo.

ISLA PLAZA TRIP OR HOW
I fell in love with the ocean...

Do you remember the feeling when your child is making his first step, the feeling of getting a b-day surprise from your friends that you didn't ever expect, the feeling of meeting your family after living so really long far from them, the moment of seeing a wonder when you take a deep breathe and can't say a word. Christmas magic...
I was afraid, I thought I am afraid of water but this trip changed everything... Fausto as a really experienced guide from the beginning taught us many things, told stories and didn't just show beautiful places and explained a lot about them, he gave us a chance to FEEL the NATURE at La Plaza, how sea lions are playing, how a swallow-tailed gull mother protecting her child, how another swallow-tailed gull, seal lion and iguana resting together under the cactus tree! He made to feel how life creatures can live together in PIECE and same how is necessary to accept the food chain rules, "one eats another" and still LIFE GOES ON... The Beauty of Reality:)
Fausto was very caring for everybody in the group, helped everywhere necessary, he made to feel really safe and comfortable as the person who knows what to do and how to live in piece with Galapagos Nature, so it made me to trust him and respect.
Everybody were going snorkeling but I knew I won't do it, so didn't even wear a swimming-suit that day. So when we arrived to the Punta Carrion and had to get ready, I told my reasons, fears not to join the group for the next activity but Fausto had solution answers to all my points so I agreed to try my first in life snorkeling with him! Was worried, scared, thrilled, excited, felt shame for being the only one like that in the group...
AND WE JUMPED!!
... then I saw Him, the Ocean...
I was trying to write what i felt so many times now but I still can't find the correct words!
That was like... "Fall in Love", the mix of all the feelings... When you take a deep breathe, your eyes get opened wider and your heart beats quicklier, it felt like seeing wonders and magic, as another world, totally another but still the one you are at! That's how new life began...and we got back on the boat feeling cold, and there was another HOT SURPRISE ;) Which one I won't write so you will want to know what was that by urself;)
That day was my first time...and with smiling all the way back, feeling a wish to hug everybody, whole world, hug the Ocean, we went back... It was a life trip with amazing people, caring crew and totally incredible food. So as my advice is to try and enjoy it, that's like dancing Kizomba with the Ocean, feeling connection and excitement, being alive together, happy smile through the tears, salty sweet taste of the beautiful amazing incredible life!

P. S. Fausto, Thank you so much again! I thought I'm afraid of water but it appeared that I love.. 🤗 really thank you for showing everything cause I don't think I could even try if not meeting someone I can trust, really really thanks! It gonna be a new life for me

With Love,
Aleksandra
