In the morning we will start our tour visiting the San Cristóbal Interpretation Center of the National Park. Here we will learn more about the Islands, their volcanic origin and how it is that here, in such a remote place, you can find the most incredible variety of endemic fauna and flora.
Then we will ascend by Frigate Bird Hill or Cerro Tijeretas its name in Spanish, due to the important colonies of frigates that nest in the area. Frigate Bird Hill is also a great viewpoint from where we can see the beautiful bay around which is the town of Puerto Baquerizo Moreno, the administrative capital of Galapagos.
After enjoying lunch, we will continue our adventure towards La Loberia. This is the local name given to the nurseries of sea lions. We will walk along a path that takes us to a small beach where we will observe puppies of sea lions resting in the sand or playing in the crystalline seas of the Galapagos. Then we continue on a more demanding trail formed by rocks, where we can find the famous marine iguanas of Galapagos, the only reptile in the world that plunges into the sea to obtain its food. We will arrive at a viewpoint from where we will be able to observe some of the most beautiful marine birds that inhabit the Galapagos Islands, such as blue-footed boobies, frigate birds, swallow-tailed gulls, shearwaters and petrels.
After this fantastic visit we will enjoy the snorkeling in the Loberia. The marine life of Galapagos is incredible and, while diving, you can find unique and colorful fish, other marine creatures and, with a bit of luck, you can even see the beautiful sea turtles gliding in the calm waters of the Pacific Ocean.
