"Rancho Primisias" Isla Santa Cruz Travelogue by malianrob
Isla Santa Cruz Travel Guide: 42 reviews and 287 photos
My cousin has a friend who is a taxi driver here in Santa Cruz. For a total of $20 he took us where ever we needed to go on the island. His name is Aureliano and my cousin told him to take us to Rancho Primisias and to the lava tunnels and craters on the highland part of the island. He stayed with us for the most of the day.
Rancho Primisias is a private own ranch/farm that lets the turtles live in thier own natural habitat. The roam freely and are not inclosed. They are also alot greener that the turtles in the Charles Darwin center.
After you have had your fill of turtles there is a restaurant where you can get some food and drinks and souveniers. Here you will also pay an admittance fee. I cant remember how much it was but it was cheap. At the restaurant there are also these turtle shells that everyone likes to take pictures on or in.
This is a little pond where the turtles like to gather in. Up here is the highland part of the islands it rains alot.
