Isla Lobos, San Cristobal

4.6
#7 of 8 in Parks in San Cristobal
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.

  • the tour includes a short walk passing near nesting areas for birds, very nice to see the chicks in the nest, was going on between the seals and their pups, and at the end, snorkeling wonderful in that some females were in the watch and also the owner of the harem was joining the group. Super cool. I loved the island, which was passing on the cruise. The village is cute, beach, next I'm going to be there.
