Enrique was our naturalist guide on the trip, born and raised on San Cristobal in the Galapagos. He was a very knowledgeable, personable guide who answered all our questions from the mating habits of giant tortoises to the ins and outs of Ecuadorian politics—for example, voting is mandatory here, and you get fined if you don’t/can’t vote for some reason.

Red Carpet Weed
Prickly Pear Cactus Tree
Sharks (this is a black tipped one but we also saw white tipped, hammerhead, and galapagos sharks)
Spotted Eagle Ray
Manta Ray (these were baby ones we saw in the harbor)
Blue Bottle Jellyfish (these guys are tiny, but they pack a wallop of a sting, let me tell you!)
Green Sea Turtles
Giant Tortoises (also Mr. Bee, and a goofy tourist)
