  Land Iguana on Santa Fe
by SanguiniA

This island is situated on the south east of the archipelago; 2.5 hrs from Santa Cruz and 3 hrs from San Cristobal. The island was formed by an uplift, and is not a volcano in itseld; giving it a rater flat appearance. It has a wonderful turqoise cove, great for snorkelling.

This island is well known for its pricky-pear cacti forest and the unique land iguana, which is more uniformly coloured than the other ones in the archipelago and has larger crests.

Wildlife highlights here are the Galapagos Hawks, mockingbirds, finches, galapagos snake and rice rats. Of course there are also sea lions present, especially on the beach.
