#1 of 8 in Wildlife in San Cristobal
One of the few places where two species of frigate birds can be seen nesting in one colony, Cerro Tijeretas lures nature lovers with its clear waters and views of pristine surroundings. Follow one of many trails on the island to snorkel off the rocks and observe turtles, sea lions, and many species of fish. Head to one of three lookout points to find nesting frigates, a statue of Charles Darwin, and uninterrupted panoramic views of the vast ocean.
