Though this island hosts the second biggest population besides besides Santa Cruz, it's not often visited on cruises or by individual travelers. San Cristobol is charming and its capital, Puerto Baquerizo Moreno, is the capital of the islands. About 5,400 people live here, and many who do work for the government or in fisheries (the Galapagos' second largest income source). There is a bank and facilities for tourists, though is by no means close to Puerto Ayora's amenities.
On San Cristobol, though, you may be lucky to see the red footed booby - the least seen of the bunch. It's also the home of the Chatham mockingbird, only found here on the island. There are many visitor sites, some of which can be reached by foot from Puerto Baquerizo Moreno. It's a charming, peaceful island, and worth the visit. Take your time in the village to get to know the people. It's a great change of pace from the tourism in Puerto Ayora!.



If you want to see where the Frigates nest, go past the Centro de Interpretacion, northeast into Scrub forest. It's a great 35 minute walk to the cliff areas of Cerro Tijeretas, and you don't need a guide. There's a good surfing spot at Playa Punta Carola (enter it through the coastline trail). The waves may be too big and daunting for swimmers, and so we recommend Playa Mann (through Avenida Northia) or Playa de Oro. The waters are calmer and there are some beach hotels as well. Take a 20 minute walk south of town to La Loberia. Here you'll enjoy the sea lions, marine iguanas, bird watching, and even tortoises. Don't forget to always stay on the path. Try not to disturb the wildlife!
