For most visitors, Baltra is their entry point into the Galapagos. Once a North American airbase, the airlines TAME and Aerogal flies to and from here on a daily basis. From here you will either catch a five minute bus ride to the dock and embark your yacht, or you'll take a bus to the south of the island, a ten minute journey to the channel that separates Baltra and Santa Cruz.
The origin of the name is unknown. Area: 27 Km2 Maximum Altitude approximately 100 meters above sea level. We will find animals such as land iguanas, marine iguanas and marine turtles.
Here a ten minute boat ride brings you to the northern most point on Santa Cruz where a bus will take you across the island arriving forty five minutes later in Puerto Ayora.
