  • We spent the day walking all along this side of the island and it was wonderful. The observation deck is nice. Not sure why they cast Darwin as a microcephalic but to each their own...
  • Take the beautiful 15-20 minute hike up from the Interpretation Center, and you'll discover another gorgeous, Grande "lagoon" here in Isla Cristobal Galapagos. Perfect for Swimming, snorkling (I saw sea lions, lots of fish, giant sea tortugas and plenty of birds) sunbathe among the sea lions, take a walk, it's simply gorgeous and the must see for Cristobal.
  • Simply amazing place... I would raise to 5 star, if there where trashcans along the route, so that people could use them instead of the nature.
  • Just unreal. It was a beautiful spot for a swim, so refreshing.
  • Many frigate birds after a short hike up the hill. All paves. Also can see pelicans fishing.
