"Visit Lonesome George, Diegito and the whole gang" Charles Darwin Research Center Tip by Kindra
Charles Darwin Research Center, Galápagos Islands: 16 reviews and 40 photos
This is a general must-see when visiting Puerto Ayora on Isla Santa Cruz, though it doesn't require a lot of time. It was so damn hot when we visited in the middle of the day that I was ready to ditch that place and dive into the cool, refreshing water. But we DID see lots of tortoise babies (they are raised there until they are old and big enough to be released to the wild without being eaten by rats and mean frigates!). We also saw the classic 100 kilo and 100+ year old Lonesome George as well as Diego, the 125 year old tortoise.
