Day 4: Isabela (B) (L) (D)
On your fourth day you must choose upon booking between a Volcano trekking tour (land tour) or Cabo Rosa (water tour with a supplement).

Sierra Negra has the second largest active crater in the world: 10km diameter. We will continue to Chico Volcano, which is a cone of Sierra Negra. We will walk through moon-like sceneries and have great views of nearby Fernandina Island and the north of the island. Lunch will be served in a local farm. You will end the day with a nice swim and snorkel at Concha de Perla lagoon.

Option 2 - Cabo Rosa Tunnels (additional cost 140,-$ per person): If you are okay with another boat ride (1 hour each way) you can take the excursion to Cabo Rosa tunnels. This is an amazing place where the volcano activity created lava tunnels going under and over the sea level. We can spot the penguins, blue footed boobies, and we will have great snorkeling too! You\'ll be back to port around 2pm,have a late lunch and then meet the other group around 3:30pm to swim/snorkel at Concha de Perla lagoon.
