Later, we also stop at the “Guacamayos-Macaw Lookout,” located between Antisana and Sumaco National Reserves (low elevation cloud forest), to observe the magic blanket of clouds that covers the Amazon rainforest, until we finally arrive at the Arajuno River, where a motor canoe will take us 20 minutes up the river to the Eco Lodge.

Finally, we will head to “La Loberia”, which is a home beach for large Galapagos sea lions. We will hike for approximately 1 hour. The ground in this hike is flooded along the shoreline at high tide. During this excursion, we will have the possibility to spot the red-billed tropicbird, blue-footed bobbies, and Nazca bobbies. We also get to see yellow warbler birds, frigate birds, and several species of Darwin’s finches along the beach.

 Day 08: Free Day - In Option Lobos island or El Junco Lagoon
After a delicious breakfast if you choose this option we will visit the Junco Lagoon, the largest natural fresh water reserve of the Galapagos

Archipelago, home to a large number of birds, being the favorite site of the frigate birds that fly and pink its fresh water waters.

In the afternoon, in case you wish, you can visit Isla Lobos. Here you can observe frigate birds, blue-footed boobies, manta rays, sea lions and sometimes sharks that all inhabit the island.

Option 2: Lobos Islands: Lobos Island is named after the colony of Galápagos Sea Lions that live here, but they aren't the only native Galápagos species that calls this narrow island home. You can see Galápagos Fur Seals basking here, and there is a nesting colony of Blue-Footed Boobies that come to Lobos each year to raise their chicks.

There are one or two short hiking trails that lead into the center of the island, and this is always a peaceful place to visit. Galapatours visitors tell us it's one of their favorite visitor sites to just sit and soak up the Galápagos atmosphere. Back on the beach, the swimming and snorkeling is wonderful, and thanks to the island's position close to the main shore of San Cristobal, the channel between them is sheltered and the turquoise water is crystal clear.

Accommodation: Opuntia Hotel or similar Meals: Breakfast
 Day 09: Flight to Quito - City Tour

After our final breakfast on the Galapagos Island and the last photos taken of sea lions, we have a transfer to San Crsitobal’s airport in time to catch the flight back to Quito.
