This island is the westernmost in the archipelago and its youngest at around 300,000 years old. It has no human population and no invasive species. It’s known for its abundance of marine iguanas, leading some to call it the “land of dragons.” It may be the best place to witness evidence of the iguanas that evolved into marine animals. One can also spot flightless cormorants and snorkel alongside sea lions, penguins, turtles, and rays. Due to the lava flow, only pioneer cacti and mangrove zones have managed to survive. As a result, it offers one of the most remarkable miniature forests in the world.
