San Cristobal Is Additionally One of the Oldest
and the Easternmost Island Of Galapagos
San Cristobal is also one of the oldest and the easternmost island of Galapagos; here we find the
capital and oldest settlement of the archipelago: Puerto Baquerizo Moreno.
Wildlife and beautiful sceneries are everywhere. Red-footed, blue-footed and masked boobies make
their home on the eastern side of the island at Punta Pitt and also the only fresh water lake El Junco
can be found in here.
The easternmost point in the Galapagos is one of the most unique. The trail includes olivine beach and
a long trail that ascents to the top of a volcanic tuff hill passing through several natural viewpoints.
This is the only place in Galapagos where all three types of booby found in Galapagos nest alongside
both types of Frigate bird. Another added attraction is the presence of sea lions.
This is a magnificent rock in the middle of the sea. Rising 500 feet straight from the ocean, this giant
uplifted rock has the shape of a sleeping lion. Beneath the sea the nearly crystal waters offer a brilliant
show of colorful tropical fish and invertebrates.
Named for its distinctive shaped mountain that resembles a witch’s hat. Located on the north coast of
the Island, Cerro Brujo offers an excellent landscape. First you’ll sail around the caves of this
enchanted place to finally arrive on a beach that is an “open area” where you are free to explore on
your own. The beach provides some excellent snorkeling in a tranquil environment.
