We decided to explore the island and went on a tour with Pim and Hanneke (sv Nelly Rose) and set off with our driver, Carlos first to the Galapaguera de Cerro Colorado – the Giant Tortoise Breeding Centre.  It was wonderful to see these creatures which are protected after being nearly wiped out following the introduction of goats on to the island which, unsurprisingly, were always faster to the food.  We’ll let the photos tell the rest:
