San Cristobal (Puerto Baquerizo)

5/12/2018

San Cristobal was one of the first islands to be colonized in the Galapagos and has one of the largest populations in the archipelago. Puerto Baquerizo Moreno is the main port town on the island and also home to a majority of the island's inhabitants. While in the village of Puerto Baquerizo Moreno, enjoy the relaxed, tranquil atmosphere and visit some of the local shops and restaurants. Like other islands in the chain, San Cristobal is home to many rare species of birds. For example, the Chatham mockingbird makes its home only on this island. If you're lucky, you may also see the red footed booby, also found on San Cristobal - along with frigates and giant tortoises. Activities on the island include walking tours, snorklings, scuba diving, birdwatching, sea kayaks and surfing.

Kicker Rock

Kicker Rock, also know as the sleeping lion because of its resemblance, is located off the coast of San Cristobal.

Visitors can access the narrow channel by small boat or kayak.

Punta Espinoza is the visitor site on Isla Ferdinandina and is situated at the northeast coast of the island. The biggest colony of marine iguanas is situated here. Hundreds of them sunbathe on the rocks. Besides the iguanas, the island is home to flightless cormorants, Galápagos penguins and sea lions. Mangroves and cacti dominate the vegetation. There are also extraordinary lava formations.

Isla Isabela (Caleta Tagus)

On the island of Isabela is Caleta Tagus, a trail that surrounds a salt-lake crater. This beautiful region is also known as the "land of marine iguanas."

This side of Isla Isabella is a paradise for sea turtles. Endemic Flightless Cormorants and the marvelous Galapagos Penguins are in their prime habitat here. Nowhere else in the world do they find themselves more at home.

Post Office, Galapagos
5/16/2018
5/16/2018

The Post Office Box on Post Office Bay was used in old days by whalers and others to stay in touch with their loved ones at home. Leaving the letters behind in the wooden barrel, other sailors returning home took it with them. Today tourists take the tradition over and leave post cards behind to be picked up later by others. A large lava tube is located behind the barrel. Visitors can enter the lava tunnels by stairs. The coastal vegetation is a dry tropical forest with low growing trees and shrubs. Frigate birds become frenzied when fisherman or cooks clean fish and throw away the scraps. Watch them playfully throw up the pieces and have aerial acrobatic frigates snatch them from the air. When free meals are not available frigates harass other sea birds in the air to drop their catch. Rays are seen around boats floating close to the water surface. The beautiful sunsets on the equator are fast and should not be missed.

Cormorant Point
5/16/2018
5/16/2018

Named not after the bird but a US ship, there is a wet landing onto a, literally, green beach - so coloured because it is made from olivine crystals (volcanic silicates of magnesium and iron). Pencil sea urchins may be found on the beach.

A short walk inland and the trail comes to a brackish lagoon. This is home to one of the biggest populations of flamingos in the archipelago, these pink residents spend about 7 hours a day or more eating, and so take some binoculars to watch the ballet of necks as they gracefully move back and fourth, scouring the floor of the lagoon for little shrimp. Take your binoculars to enjoy the show up close. Also present are pintail ducks and stilts. The trail crosses a narrow neck of land and comes to a white beach on the eastern side of the island. Ghost crabs inhabit the beach, and rays and turtles can be seen in the sea.

Sea turtles nest at Punta Cormorant (December to May) on the white sand beach, just a short walk away from the olive coloured beach where you land.
