This large map greets you, as you land on Santa Cruz Island after crossing the Canal de Itabaca by water taxi. The short boat ride takes you from Baltra Island to the northern shore of Santa Cruz.
Also greeting you are buses and white truck taxis. If you are traveling with a Red Mangrove Tour, your transportation will be waiting – either a full size bus or a charter 4-door pickup truck. If not, you’ll have to arrange transportation with one of the waiting taxistas (Spanish for taxi driver).
From here, you will travel south to the town of Puerto Ayora – the capital of Santa Cruz Island.
