Just a Ride Away
Although many of the Santa Cruz island’s popular activities are close by the Angermeyer Waterfront Inn, there are other unique places that will require some light traveling as they are a little further away from the hotel. Explore all of the terrains of Santa Cruz Island and discover incredible natural formations, volcano craters, pristine beaches and more.
El Garrapatero Beach
Cerro Mesa Ecological Reserve
At the eastern side of the highlands of Santa Cruz Island you’ll find the Cerro Mesa Galapagos Ecological Reserve, a remarkable viewpoint where you can take extraordinary landscape pictures, hike and enjoy birdwatching surrounded by the native forest of this side of the island. This exceptional place offers camping sites to spend the night under the stars, a visit to the biggest sinkhole of the island and adequate gear and bicycle equipment to explore the area. Cerro Mesa is located at close distance from the Garrapateros beach, a joint visit is possible.
Another great place to visit in our beloved Santa Cruz Island is El Chato II, a big ranch on the highlands where giant tortoises live and roam free while visitors walk among nature. This reserve is a great place for bird watchers also, there are multiple species of birds around the area. Due to the size of the place a guide is recommended when visiting this attraction although you can find trails to discover tortoises along the way.
