Distance: 5 km
Time: 34 minutes

I found a few people writing about this route on the internet, more for the beautiful white sand beach at the end than the nice 5km return run.  It’s a really nice rolling run that starts almost straight out of Puerto Ayora.  You need only sign in at the guard post before getting on to the path, passing hopeful surfers along the way.  If I had known how nice the beach was, and how hot 7:30am was going to be in Santa Cruz, I would have brought my bathing suit and gone for a dip.  The heat definitely didn’t help with the speed.
