General itinerary for the day

On this arrival day from Ecuador's mainland it is planned that you will be picked up at the airport, then transfered to the hotel. After a bit of rest we will get ready to have lunch, and directly after lunch we drive for 5 minutes to the sea lions nursery beach "Playa La Loberia", where you can walk and see the sea lions colony near by. It is possible also to continue the hike to a view point where you see many Tropic Birds flying at the clif side, and bigger marine iguanas on the way. It is a bit tricky, so you have to be very carefull with your stepping through the lava rock path. After returning from the view point, you can jump in the water to do snorkeling and maybe play with baby or young sea lions, not with the bull from the colony!

What can you do today?

Sightseeing, small hike, bird watching, animal observation, snorkeling.

Possible / Suggested Overnight Town:

Puerto Baquerizo Moreno.
