Santa Cruz is the second largest of the 19 Islands that make up the Galapagos archipelago. It is the most populated of all the Islands making it a great to wine and dine. Branch out and eat something you wouldn’t usually (like ceviche) as you only get to do this once!! There are also many…

Galapagos Islands without a tour company
