There is no better way to enjoy the first full day of our expedition than by visiting one of the most stunning islands of the Galápagos: Española. Located in the southeast, it endures the force of both the South Equatorial Current and the trade winds, particularly at this time of the year. Española is one of the oldest islands and thus has a high rate of endemic species. There are just two visitor sites on the island, Gardner Bay and Punta Suárez, which means most of its area is off-limits to humans, remaining totally protected.
