San Cristobal Is, Galapagos Is

San Cristóbal (Chatham) is the easternmost island in the Galápagos archipelago, and one of the oldest geologically. The capital of the archipelago, Puerto Baquerizo Moreno, lies at the south-western tip of the island.

An easy walk from town Frigatebird Hill offers a fantastic vista. San Cristobal's highlands are sprinkled with farms, the island's first settlement El Progresso and El Junco, the only freshwater lake in Galapagos.

Red-footed, blue-footed and masked boobies make their home on the eastern side of the island at Punta Pitt. A two-hour hike down shore from Punta Pitt wild tortoises can be seen at La Galapaguera.

Cruise to spectacular Kicker Rock, or Leon Dormido, the jagged remains of an old tuff cone whose flanks are covered with seabirds.
