The highlands of San Cristobal exhibit distinctly different bio-zones than the other inhabited islands. The first stop on this trans-island journey is at El Junco, a freshwater lagoon nested in the center of the islands. Here you can view Frigatebirds and other water fowl bathing in the lagoon.
Unfortunately, you will not be able to join them in the inviting water. Moving on from the lagoon you will stop at La Galapaguera, San Cristobal’s Tortoise research and conservation center, where a short walk through the jungle allows you to see and learn about this island’s growing Tortoise population in a natural setting.
The road ends at Puerto Chino beach, a remote bay on the southeast side of the island, where you can relax on the beach or wander the shoreline.
