only a short distance from San Cristobal. it is even possible to walk if you like to walk and don't mind the sun. There is a lot of sea lions and their pups swimming and sun bating. You see lots of fish and sea turtles, and sea lions while snorkeling. Sea lion pups call their moms' when they want to... More

Awesome beach. When u get to the trail, head about a quarter mile to the left to get to the sandy beach and cove. Sea lions are everywhere and are highly entertaining with all their noises and antics. Snorkeling is great as well. Bring a wet suit if ya have one. Straight out in the middle about 100m out is...

We went several times to Las Loberias, morning and afternoon. You can go with the taxi which cost $3 or you can walk from the city centre (about 2,5km). There are many sealions laying in the beach and swimming in the sea. When you enter the beach you walk to the left. There is a path where you can walk... More

If you walk along the path on the rocks, you will see plenty of marine iguanas and birds. You can go back to Puerto Baquerizo by walking (around... More

I highly recommend going to the beach. Take a cab from town, about 3 dollars one way. Also take snorkel equipment and a camera!

The beach is around 20 min walk from the center, but there are no signs how to get there, so I recommend taking a taxi ($3) and you can walk back if you want to. There are a lot of sea lions on the beach and you can swim with them as well, but keep your distance. We also saw... More
