  • Coming out to the right of the city on a journey of 30 minutes access cerro Earwigs, where Darwin set foot on the Islands, and place where a monument reminds of this event. In the you can go and see wildlife, and even make a nice snorkeling or bathing on the beach at the base of the Hill besides having a privileged view of the island

  • This place can not miss it if you visit San Cristobal, has the best view of the island! If you like to admire the scenery, the sea, the horizon I recommend bringing binoculars. Also bring water ice to cool off for the walk, and if you like snorkelling as there are also to carry the team because doing so on the small dock that is below is incredible!
