Isla Lobos, San Cristobal

(4.8/5 based on 60 reviews on the web)
A rich variety of animal life awaits you on the soft white sand and beneath the crystal clear waters of Isla Lobos. Hike across the sand to view the tortoises, blue-footed boobies, iguanas, and sea lions that dot the landscape. Climb to the top of the hill to see a statue of Darwin. Snorkeling will yield close encounters with sea lions, tropical fish, manta rays, hammerhead sharks, and red crabs. The sea lions here are very sociable, so don't be afraid to say hello.

  • Lobos is a Spanish sea lion. This is the second tiny island of Isla Lobos in South America, which I visited first was in Uruguay. In sea lions there is no shortage on the island. In addition to these were golubonogie booby and pelicans, and San Cristobal directly opposite Isla Lobos on trees sat several frigates with pouty red "bags" on the chest. The best place for snorkeling and observing small curious Sea Lion Cubs. They come to you. The adult sea lions to the people do not show any interest and not come close, keep from them still better at few metres.

  • The island of San Cristobal is an intermediary between Santa Cruz and Isabela Island. Has some of the facilities of the big island and remains with an air of fishermen in the Decade of 50.
