Santa Cruz is also famous for diving. Especially the dive site Gordon Rocks where you can see Hammerhead sharks if lucky. The tour to there are restricted to just a few companies a day, so you have to choose wisely when to go and with whom. We went twice and were lucky to spot Hammerheads, some upclose and some right below us. The first trip we had very good visibility. If you go there it makes sense to do it at least 2 times. Conditions change quickly.
After the trips we always went to Tortuga Bay, which is the nicest beach.
A bit surreal to have a christmas tree at 28°C ;)
On dec 3rd we had to fly home. What a spectacular trip.
