The easternmost of the Galapagos Islands, San Cristobal was where naturalist Charles Darwin and his expedition first landed when visiting the archipelago in 1835. Tourism in San Cristobal largely sticks to a Darwinian line of inquiry, with visitors drawn to the island's ecological abundance and endemic species. Sea lions, blue-footed boobies, and frigate birds are among the most popular natural inhabitants, while the surrounding waters offer sights of sharks, lobsters, and rays at a number of easily reached dive sites. With the Galapagos capital of Puerto Baquerizo Moreno on the island, you'll have access to plenty of accommodations, services, and businesses during your San Cristobal holiday.
