Day 5: WEDNESDAY: SANTIAGO ISLAND & RABIDA ISLAND:

Stop At: Puerto Egas, Ecuador
AM - EGAS PORT: Here we find a beautiful black sand beach; to the south of the beach is Pan de Azucar Volcano, whose volcanic deposits have contributed to the formation of the black sand beach. The crater of this volcano contains a saltwater lake that dries up during hot weather. Between 1928 and 1930, explorations to develop a salt mine were carried out, but it was decided that a mine was not feasible. The workers’ use of endemic woods also damaged the environment and the development was scrapped. Descent down into the salt mine is not allowed. Lunch.
Duration: 2 hours

Stop At: Rabida Island, Ecuador
PM - RABIDA ISLAND: The visitor site, located on the east coast of Rabida Island, consists of a red sand beach, a coastal lagoon behind the beach, and a loop trail approximately 1.1 km in length.
The red color of the rocks and sand on the beach is due to the interaction of the very porous volcanic material with environmental factors. Rain, saltwater and the sea breeze act as oxidizing agents, creating the red color. The scenery, arid zone vegetation and the presence of native and endemic species add to the beauty of this island. Dinner.
Duration: 2 hours

Meals included:
• Breakfast
• Lunch
• Dinner
Accommodation included: M/C Eco Galaxy First Class Cruise. Shared cabin (Double or Twin).
