Española Island

Galapagos vacations, Española Island, Punta Suarez

Punta Suarez: This rocky point gives refuge to one of the most impressive and varied colonies of sea birds in Galapagos. The trail runs round in a loop and one of the first places is a rock covered and mainly open area where blue footed boobies nest in their hundreds.

You will encounter many blue-footed and masked boobies who mate and nest here.

Further on is a similar place where waved albatrosses are nesting, again on the ground. It is said that the total world population of waved albatrosses can be found here from March to December every year. Near here is a high cliff where the young launch themselves for their first flight.

The Hood mockingbird is a very bold bird and has learnt to take water from the carriers that guides have, and they may also approach tourists to see if they have anything liquid about their person. Tropic birds are very much in evidence and will be flying high overhead.

There is also the possibility of seeing one or more of the three species of Darwin finch.
