  • This place was one of our highlights of the Galapagos thanks to a very friendly sea lion. The water is chilly but is very clear and there is a plethora of fish and sea turtles. On a scorching hot day ...  more »
  • From the top, a visual spectacular. Easy access by urbanized trail from the center of interpretation. Downstairs, clear waters perfect for snorkelling. If you're lucky a sea lion still appears to swim with you.

  • The view from Mirador Cerro Tijeretas is stunning. But don't stop there, because there's a little trail that continues on for about 2.5 km. It's not so well-marked and it's surface can be uneven, so be sure to wear appropriate shoes. One of your rewards will be seeing an exceptional example of a Jasminocereus thouarsii (a tree that's endemic to Ecuador and the Galapagos Islands) - it looks like a candelabra!
  • Place with great views of San Cristoban ... .... Super recommend this tours ... Pay nothing to scroll through this small trekking.

  • Wonderful views in different viewpoints. One of them, there is a descent to snorkel in a Bay (Tijeretas). In others, there is a statue and a cannon of war. In another, there is the beginning of a trail to the Playa Baquerizo (around 2:00). Do not start this win without proper shoes (sneakers) or after the 2:00 pm, as it is a very difficult track with lots of rocks in the middle of a relatively dense vegetation.

  • This site can be visited without a guide. Located near Puerto Baquerizo Moreno. It has three viewpoints and the access to the area for snorkelling is easy. The water is very clear.

  • It is a nice vantage point to photograph. Some birds are seen and it has a nice view. It is a path in rise but that anyone at your own pace could do it. There are no lights to do so at night. Highly recommended
