  • Beautiful place, we had an amazing day. Although at this time humboldt penguins are nesting at the top of the island choros, some armyworkers also came down to greet us. We were also able to share some Chungungos and sea lions. Also squealing foxes approached us with desire to be fed, obviously we did not.
