Isla Santa Cruz Overview

Isla Santa Cruz is the main island of the Galapagos Islands. It is the island where the capital Puerto Ayora is situated. The main reason people go here is for the biggest airport on a small island North of it. And for visiting the research centre with many Galapagos animals.
