May 2

Day 1 (Monday)
San Cristobal Island
In the morning, you will arrive at San Cristobal Island. After passing through immigration and baggage claim, you will be met by the Majestic staff and transferred to the yacht. You will be shown to your cabin where you will have some time to settle in before lunch and a welcome briefing.
In the afternoon, your first visit takes you to El Junco Lagoon. Located in the highlands 19 kilometers from Puerto Baquerizo Moreno, El Junco is located in the caldera of an extinct volcano. Rainwater feeds the lagoon. There are many farms and ranches in this area of San Cristobal Island, and sometime cows can be found near the lagoon.
El Junco
Activities: Hike around the lagoon, Difficulty: Easy/moderate, Type of Landing: Dry landing
Highlights & Animals: Beautiful lagoon filling the crater of the extinct volcano, frigates, occasionally some species of local water birds

The tour folks sent a private car and driver to take us from the hotel they provided for the first night, a Marriott, through some crazy-steep switch-back roads...

((I'll put in the Quito part with the rest of my stay there.))
