Silversea Expedition Cruises To Galapaguera Cerro Colorado, San Cristobal

Galapaguera Cerro Colorado, San Cristobal

The Galapaguera, i.e. tortoise (breeding) center, Cerro Colorado is located on San Cristobal’s east side, yet to get there one has to land in Puerto Baquerizo Moreno, the largest settlement and port on San Cristobal’s west side and also the capital of the Galapagos Islands. The center was started in 2003 and is one of two tortoise reserves on the island. View more

The aim is to give information regarding the giant tortoises’ origin and evolution and to protect the native population on San Cristobal’s northeastern side by breeding and taking care of them at Cerro Colorado before releasing them into the wild once they have reached an age where they can fend for themselves. Approximately 16 hectares of land were fenced in to stop the tortoises from wandering off and visitors can walk along interpretive trails and see the feeding spots and the young tortoises in their holding pens based on their age. Apart from the giant tortoises, Chatham Island Mockingbirds, Darwin finches and lava lizards are found here.
