Feb 8, 2013| by administrator

Read days 8 & 9 here.
Day 10:

At Black Turtle Cove on Santa Cruz Island, the morning is shared with some exotic marine life.

A quiet dinghy ride through the mangroves.  The motor will be turned off to allow close observation of marine turtles, white tipped reef sharks, yellow rays and other marine species

Today Marion, Carol, and the rest of their group will fly to Guayaquil.

Over in Guayaquil, it's a full afternoon of getting up close and personal with iguanas and a little leisure time at the lovely Malecón (river walk).  Malecón is a tourist favorite, so the group is sure to enjoy their afternoon.

 Day 11:

After a delayed flight, Marion and the group get to spend a little extra time at their hotel as they wait for their flight.  The original flight was to take them to Cusco, but they end up having to fly to Lima for a night.

Marion gets to see firsthand how large Lima really is.  It is home to 10 million residents!
