Los tuneles is the result of lava platforms that collapsed into the sea, which created hundreds of lava tunnels and bridges of lava, above and below the water. The tunnels are a marine paradise and is a spectacular place to spot marine life while snorkeling in the clear waters surrounded by scenic lava formations of different colors and clear blue sky. The lava tunnels are home to many species such as white tip reef sharks, manta rays, seahorses, penguins, sea turtles, sea lions, giant mantas, colorful fish and blue-footed boobies.
These lava tunnels were formed millions of years ago when the lava flows from the volcanos on the island were solidified on the outside, thanks to their contact with the water, while remaining liquid on the inside, leaving the lava tunnels which have been eroded by the elements over thousands of years.
Observe the lava formations that form the Galapagos from up close in an impressive marine landscape in the The Tunnels. In Cabo Rosa, it is possible to swim with manta rays, White-tipped sharks, Galapagos sharks, sea horses, penguins, sea turtles, and many more species of fish.
