Galapagos vacations, Santa Cruz Island, Puerto Ayora

Puerto Ayora: Is a port town situated along Academy Bay on Santa Cruz Island and has a current population of 12,000. Most yachts offering cruises of the Galapagos hail from Puerto Ayora.

The bay is full of sailboats, sea birds fill the air and marine iguanas line the shore. Though a thriving center of commerce people enjoy a laid back island attitude. Most travelers to the Galapagos will include a visit to Puerto Ayora during their trip.

The cruises include a visit to the Darwin Station and arrange free time to explore the town and shop for souvenirs.

Puerto Ayora offers options for visitors who prefer to sleep ashore or extend their stay in the islands.

There are a variety of tours available allowing visitors to design their own Galapagos experience including day-trips to a number of the islands, dive trips, kayaking, highland tours, hiking, mountain biking and horseback rides.
