Galapagos Islands vacations,  Fernandina Island, Punta Espinosa

Marine iguanas are the only known lizards to have adapted themselves to a life dependent on the sea, feeding on the green algae and seaweed several feet below the water's surface. You find them only in the Galapagos and Fernandina holds the largest colony. Plants are nearly devoid in this area.

Lava Cactus seems to be one of the few plants able to survive. These small cacti live only a few years, growing in groups.

The spines are yellow when young darkening with age and the flower is a creamy white visible only in the early mornings.

Why do we need to pay a $100.00 Park Fee?
