South Plaza is the smallest of the Galapagos Islands. It has an area of 0.13 km and a maximum altitude of 23 metres, so if you don’t like heights, this place is awesome!
Of all the islands we visited, this one had the most wildlife. As a photographer with a very basic point’n’shoot camera, the up-close-and-personal wildlife made for some pretty incredible photos, even for a novice.
If you are a better photographer than me, this would be your dream destination.
The day we visited was wet and hot, it was like watching wildlife from within a sauna. The raincoats while they kept off the rain, enabled you to create your own personal sweat-bath under the plastic. Nice… 😉
South Plaza is unique in that the land and marine iguana’s territories overlap and they interbreed. Don’t ask me which ones are shown in the photos, I don’t know, but thats ok as they obviously can’t tell the difference either.
