After a 100 minutes flight, we are now officially on Galapagos soil, alas, there´s not much to see on this the airport island known as BALTRA .

This island was used by the U.S.AIR FORCE during WWII and they built the original landing strip.

We are going to take a bus and the short ride (10 minutes) will take us through the remnants of the before mentioned military base, there are several GALAPAGOS LAND IGUANAS and yes when we were walking from the airport to the bus, we might have come near some GALAPAGOS DARWIN FINCHES.

The ride ends at the edge of a precipice with your first breathtaking view of the Galapagos islands turquoise waters.
