Santa Cruz

3.8
The second largest in the Galapagos archipelago, the island of Santa Cruz is actually a volcano dormant for more than a million years. Home to the Galapagos' largest city, the island is a great base for exploring the archipelago, while offering attractions of its own. A Santa Cruz vacation provides access to quality snorkeling, scuba diving, and swimming, as well as exploring the rugged volcanic landscape. Hiking in the mountainous interior, you can discover a variety of wildlife, including numerous birds and giant tortoises, while the picturesque seaside is home to turtles, flamingos, pelicans, and whitetip sharks. Santa Cruz is in Galapagos Islands. Use our Ecuador tour itinerary planner to plan your trip to Santa Cruz and other destinations in Ecuador.
