Galapagos Islands


Rábida Island is one of the tiniests islands in Galapagos, at just 1.89 square miles. Initially named after the British Admiral John Jervis, it was renamed after the monastery La Rabida, where Christopher Columbus left his son. One of its most distinctive features is the red colour of the soil, given by the high levels of iron, creating thus a striking and unusual landscape, with rocky planes and abrupt slopes. There's a trail that visitors can follow to the lagoon, where you can spot bright pink flamingos, pintail ducks, but also sea lions and even fur seals.
