Española Island

Española Island Excursion . . .

The island Española is located at the south end of the archipelago. It is one of the oldest islands around, estimated at 300 million years. There is currently no volcanic activity.
The island is a paradise for birds due to its dryness and the absence of fresh water sources.
The area the island covers is 60 km2, with a height of 206 meters above sea level.
Remarkable is the colony of albatross, which can count up to 15,000 couples, many of the females nesting on the same tourist paths. These albatross are found here from the end of March until early December.
Also found at the island are Nazca boobies, whose nesting zones differ from the blue-footed boobies.
The caves on the island serve as homes for more tropical birds. Beautiful bright colored crabs covering the black lava rock as well as the swallow-tailed gulls.
Do not be surprised to find marine iguanas and lava lizards on your path.
Another curious aspect of the island is the geyser that is present. It is not a volcanic geyser, but a tunnel in which water flows through up and bursts out up to a height of 20 meters.
Along the cliffs of the island is a spectacular view. Española island is known for its natural beauty and is considered a paradise for bird lovers.

- Take sun block, sunglasses, a sun hat, extra water (they will have water on the boat too), and comfortable shoes for walking. An extra sweater is also a good idea for after snorkeling as it can feel a bit chilly.
