Admire the gentle giants of the Galapagos at Rancho Primicias. Explore the ranch lush with fruit trees and populated by cattle, goats, and giant tortoises. The tortoises are calm and relaxed and will not be frightened if you walk up near them, so the site provides the chance for some great photo ops. Observe the creatures as they roam around the ranch munching on greens and playing in the water. There is also a souvenir shop and a cafe restaurant (known for fresh passion fruit juice).
