Puerto Baquerizo Moreno: Is the provincial capital of the Galapagos and the second largest settlement area in the islands and home to one of the island's two main airports.

It  has 5,400 population employed in fishing and Government work and is less touristy than Puerto Ayora but is still very pleasant to amble around with plenty to do in the surrounding areas. There is a small natural history museum (Franciscan) to visit of interest as well as a cathedral on Avenida Northia with painted murals depicting Galapagos themes.

At the North end of the town you can also visit the Interpretation center (Centro de lnterpretacion) with exhibits of the history of the islands and biological interpretations and examples.

One site worth seeing are the various Frigate homes whom nest and hover around various cliff areas of Cerro Tijeretas

overlooking the ocean and nearby town just 35 minutes away.
