Did you know that Tarzan’s house is on San Christobal Island?
This house is built up in a huge Ceibo tree, that is estimated to be more the 300 years old. It is also called “Casa Ceibo” and you can visit or rent the house. It sleeps two persons.
Don’t be afraid of heights! But where is Tarzan?
There he is… or at least he is my Tarzan
The place is worth a visit, and you can climb down underneath the tree – really cool. It reminded me about a Danish fairytale called “Fyrtårnet” written by the famous author Hans Christian Andersen. In English the fairytale is called “Tinderbox” – you should read it
Can’t tell you what is downstairs, but you can visit and find out yourself . The place is also known to serve banana cake. We bought just one piece to share, but it was quite dry, so we bought an ice cream with passion fruit (In Spanish “Maracuya”) flavor, that was really good. Back on the bicycles Esben was really glad, that is as going downhill all the way back, because the way to Tarzan’s house was tough (left picture). Esben really was my Tarzan this day, and picked fresh oranges.
On San Christobal we cooked all our meals. Buying fresh fruit, vegetables, plantains, cheese and a lot of fresh tuna. I cut of skin and bones, and I could cut 4 tuna steaks out of the piece of tuna, that you see in the right picture. It is the best tuna we have ever had!
Love tuna – love Galapagos – eat local
The house dog loved to eat the leftovers
On San Christobal we didn’t go on any tours, but we did DIY (do it yourself) activities. So in the morning we read for our PADI diving course, and in the afternoon we went exploring: (1) Tarzan’s house, (2) the Galapagos dogs at Playa Mann, (3) snorkeling at the beaches north of Puerto Baquerizo Moreno and (4) visiting the Interpretative Center.
Puerto Baquerizo Moreno
Muella Tijeretas – here the water was really cold but clear. We spotted a sea turtle and a few sea lions
Just the walk to the beach is amazing
We passed by this huge statue of Charles Darwin
Every night we enjoyed the sunset
