I took this picture of my feet the first time I stepped onto the Galápagos, marking the start of my adventure. Rábida is a wet landing, meaning you come in on a panga (Zodiac/dinghy) as far as possible, then jump overboard in the shallow water and wade to shore on the beach (hence the water shoes).
There are several different colors of beaches to be seen in the Galápagos. Rábida has red sand due to the high amount of iron in the volcanic rock. It was unlike anything I had ever seen before. I also got to snorkel for the first time ever on this beach.
Gotta get to the Galapagos one of these days. Hope it met your expectations!!
Oh, definitely! It was a wonderful experience. I hope you can go.
I am jealous! THAT is quite an adventure.
