San Cristobal Island

Aug 26, 2017 - National Geographic Islander


The last day of the expedition we spent on San Cristobal Island. We visited Punta Pitt in the morning, a spectacular site with breathtaking landscapes, and a wonderful place for sea birds. All three species of boobies are found here. At the beach our guests enjoyed an incredible snorkeling opportunity with Galapagos sea lions. In the afternoon we enjoyed visiting one of the most beautiful beaches of the Galapagos archipelago, Cerro Brujo. It was an incredible expedition day with memorable moments, amazing pictures, and great people!

She left the islands for the capital city of Quito for high school, where she discovered that learning foreign languages was one of her main interests. Coming from a family of naturalist guides, it was not a surprise that she also became one at the age of 17.
