South Plaza is one of the small but rich islands in the archipelago. Only 130 meters wide (426 feet), was formed from volcanic magma, giving it a unique quality within their species. Our landing is in the channel between North and South Square, where the island is deployed by the sea.
The approach makes an attractive and colorful journey. The turquoise waters of the channel contrast brilliantly with the white sand and black lava coast. The rocks have grown thin with some cactus in certain places, highlighted with colorful zayapas.
The road continues gradually to the highest part of the island to observe the gullies that allow the ocean to the south, where swallow-tailed gulls nest. Tropical birds, masked and blue footed boobies are the wind currents. The point is a magnificent place to observe marine life, including manta rays. The cost of Plaza makes perfect snorkeling activity in a colony of sea lions that come to almost a thousand.
