Volcano Watching in the Galapagos is a sporadic thing depending upon if the volcano La Cumbre on Fernandina Island is erupting or not.
Many of the islands are great for Hiking in the Galapagos.
Personally, some of the hikes around Isabela Island are the best, you can hike up to a crater lake and through dry cactus forests.
One good hike for beginners is the 30 minute hike from the town of Puerto Ayora on Santa Cruz Island to Tortuga Bay Beach, a real gem with turquoise water.
For Snorkeling in the Galapagos, I like Isabela Island.
Well, where else can you snorkel in 15 feet of water and be surrounded by sea lions, large reef sharks (not dangerous, I think), and manta rays?
Try the waters near Las Tintoreras Islet. Best to go with a guide.
In my opinion, Scuba Diving in the Galapagos is best off of the Floreana Island. Hammerheads, sea turtles and manta rays are all a common sight, and if you’re lucky and in season, whale sharks.
The best place to try Camping in the Galapagos is on the Isabela Island due to the small population, rural setting and lax local police.
Star watching will be amazing!
