The tourist trail is about 2 km long and goes from one end of the island to the other while revealing the spectacular life of the birds. There are many blue-footed boobies nesting, which must be careful not to step on one of their nests (depending on season). You can observe red marine iguanas that are spread out in the sun or buzzards on top of the trees. They hunt the juvenile blue-footed boobies. Following the path, you can find masked boobies that are nesting almost all year round on the cliffs. The culminating moment of the tour is undoubtedly the colony of the Galapagos albatross, which are endemic to this island, not found anywhere else in the islands or the world. In mid-March and the end of December there are around 12,000 of these fascinating birds with wings of around 2.40m. On the cliffs they seem to be really uncomfortable but when they fly they are the kings of heaven. A short distance from the albatross colony is the Blow Hole. This is a source of water up to 20m (50-75 feet) high that has been created by waves. All energy is pressed through a small hole between the cliff. The phenomenon resembles a geyser. The walk lasts between 2 and 2:30.
