A visit is worthwhile, although a small exhibition the information is informative and gives access to a pathed path to the look outs and snorkelling area on this side of the island.

Don’t miss this interpretation center. Very informative and fun. Great viewing of wildlife. Trails are well maintained but a few spots are rocky.

Visited as part of a cruise. It was nice to have a guide talk about some of the plants and animals we saw whilst walking around the park. At the viewing platform we were able to watch swimmers in the bay (which we sadly did not have time to visit ourselves) and even saw dolphins swimming & playing the bay! Amazing! There is also a small exhibition/museum inside the centre. This gives an informative background about the islands and the things they're doing to retain the natural beauty and sustainability. Very informative.

Excellent presentation of the islands history, attempts by other governments to acquire the islands, development and destruction of the wildlife and the efforts to restore the natural eco system, in harmony with sustainable tourist development. A visit here should be a must on any visit to the island. Lovely boardwalk starts behind the centre around the headland and to two snorting beeches.

I walked here for one reason...to see the San Cristóbal mockingbird. I was rewarded immediately as one hopped around the stone wall in the garden. I also enjoyed the exhibit which was a series of wallboards in Spanish and English narrating the timeline of emergence of the Galapagos from the sea and the trail of human visitors, settlers who all took their toll on the islands. The final chart asked what was the number of tourists that could be accommodated without impacting the islands negatively. I did not notice an answer to the question. For the most part humans have come to the Galapagos to make money. The locals who now entertain us tourists so nicely are the latest in the series of those making money off the islands. They have struck gold, because everyone I know wants to come here.
