More about  Baltra


Baltra is one of the gateways to the Galapagos Islands where Seymour Airport is located, also known as Baltra Airport.  This small island is also known by the local name of South Seymour.  During World War II, it was a US Airforce base positioned to patrol the Eastern Pacific and to protect the Panama Channel.

The island’s arid vegetation is formed by saltbushes, pricky-pear cacti, and holy stick trees.
