Galápagos marine iguana

Marine iguanas feed on algae at low tide and can submerge up to 20 meters (60 feet) and spend more than 60 minutes underwater. They are descendants of land iguanas of South America. Marine iguanas can live for 25 to 30 years and can grow up to one-meter length. The Galapagos marine iguana (Amblyrhynchus cristatus) is one of the forty species of iguanas on the planet. They live exclusively in the Galapagos Islands (endemic species).

Galapagos Islands, Darwin's paradise

Galapagos Islands are a dream destination for all travelers who love nature. This archipelago is formed by thirteen volcanic islands, located a thousand kilometers west of Ecuador. The Enchanted Islands have a special location due to the confluence of three streams - Humboldt, Cromwell and California -. These streams form a unique microclimate that encourages the presence of an extraordinary variety of endemic and unique species on the planet. Tourists will be able to swim among large communities of sea lions, blue sharks or sea turtles; walking through lunar-like landscapes with all kinds of iguanas or the mythical Galapagos (giant tortoises), and seeing an infinity of exotic birds such as frigates or blue-footed boobies. The Galapagos are, along with the Andes, the Pacific coast and the Amazon, one of the four natural regions of Ecuador.
