La Loberia, San Cristobal

4.6
#1 of 16 in Outdoors in San Cristobal
Visit a stretch of coast well known for its resident sea lions at La Loberia. On this sandy beach animals organize into colonies, with around 30 females and their cubs surrounding the dominant male of the group. Watch the way they interact and listen to the inimitable noises they make, making sure to stay back and heed the advice of the wardens--sea lions tend to be very territorial. Other than the main residents, you'll find yellow warbles, frigate birds, and plenty of species of finch, as well as large marine iguanas.
