My class and I got a taste of some of the more touristy activities this past Friday through a trip consisting of El Junco, Galapaguera, and Puerto Chino. We also made a stop at the Agencia de Agricultura’s farm in the highlands. It was fascinating to see the gradient of ecosystems as we drove from the sunny, semi-arid coastal area of Puerto Baquerizo Moreno into the lush, tropical highlands, and finally back down into the dry, sun-bathed beaches around Puerto Chino. Our naturalist guide, Jorge, provided us with a tremendous amount of information during each stop along the way. The destinations throughout the day supplemented several aspects of the material that we have been learning about in the classroom in terms of resource management principles and necessary conservation procedures. The field trip was an amazing educational experience and way to familiarize ourselves more with all that San Cristóbal has to offer.
