I did a 2 hour morning walk before breakfast and went out as far as the lava cave and the Playa del Amor. The beach at low tide is spectacular and had plenty of shorebirds. Near the end there were lots of marine iguanas. There...More

No problem to walk the path - it takes max. 3 hours. Go there in the morning so you will see more tortugas! The wall was nice but not more.

Knowing it would be a hot day, we packed lots of water. We should have packed more food since we spent lots of time along the route. We are all experienced cyclists. We rented bikes at one of the many shops. Do check over the...More
