5 Day Mangrove Roots Day Tour

In the highlands, Giant Tortoises can be seen in their natural habitat. While visiting this area you will visit a local ranch where lunch will be provided. Afterwards, the shuttle will take you to the Charles Darwin Research Station.

The Charles Darwin Research Station is one of the most important sites for visitors. It is a research facility that has an extensive collection of Galapagos plant life specimens carefully preserved and also acts as a biological research station and active breeding center operated by the Charles Darwin Foundation. Their biggest conservation efforts are to one day eliminate all invasive and non-native plants and animals destroying endemic species within the islands.

After the visit to the Research Station, you will be brought to the Red Mangrove Eco Luxury Hotel. Enjoy the rest of the afternoon/evening at the hotel in your accommodation and the services provided by the hotel.
