Vamos a Las Grietas on Santa Cruz Island

The ferry was a fast two hours back to Puerto Ayora on Santa Cruz Island from Puerto Villamil on Isabela Island.  Usually it is not a good idea to do something on a Sunday because everyone else is doing it, too.  That turned out to be the case on our walk to Las Grietas, but it was interesting anyway.  First you have to take a yellow water taxi to that side of the harbor.

As we walked we passed lava walls hiding very upscale houses, hotels, and restaurants, Punta Estrada Beach, structures with strange tire windows, salt flats, and a stream.

700 meters later you reach a water-filled crevice in the rocks where everyone is swimming or snorkeling.  It is beautiful but crowded.  Another day perhaps?

These boys are egging each other on to jump, and finally someone has the courage to go first.
