Reserva el Chato: In the upper part of the island giant tortoises can be found wandering freely through the area around the lagoon from the Chato.

Twin craters: Subsidence is formed by a series of eruptions when the islands were still active. The twin craters are the only place on the island where the Scalesia forest, endemic plant to this area, where are some species of finches of Galapagos and often the beautiful sorcerer bird can be observed.

Lava Tunnels: were formed as the outer skin of molten lava solidified but the liquid magma inside continued flowing, leaving behind a series of empty tubes. Visitors can walk through these underground channels.
