Santa Cruz or San Cristobal

Which do/did you like better Santa Cruz or San Cristobal? Im looking at a solo, loosely-escorted, reasonably-priced tour that includes Quito, Amazon, Guayaquil and one Galapagos island. 12 day trip with 4 days on one of the islands. Flying to one of the islands from Quito i.e. not cruising.
From my research, Santa Cruz is more popular, a tad more expensive and would require flying to Baltra and then ferrying to Santa Cruz; and San Cristobal is more laid back and has a direct flight from Quito.
I am an active 60s female, interested in tortoises, boobies, nature.
Whats been your experience between these two islands? Thanks in advance!

I didn't go to San Cristobal. Are you sure you do not want to do a short cruise? If you are going soon, have a look at Angelito cruises as an option. The do break up some north and east legs into 4 and 5 day which let you get to some of the better wildlife locations.
