San Cristobal is the easternmost island in the Galapagos archipelago and, geologically, one of the oldest. Spot nesting colonies of Frigatebirds and cruise around Kicker Rock, a cone formation which rises nearly 500 ft out of the sea.
Visit Las Primicias, a private farm where you can encounter giant tortoises in their natural habitat. Stop at the tunnels, the largest lava tubes found in Galapagos, before visiting Los Gemelos and the Charles Darwin Research Station. Walk around three tortoise corals and the breeding center.
In the afternoon, sail to the southern tip of Santiago, Sombrero Chino (Chinese Hat). Come ashore to walk through sea lion colonies or take a trail through primeval volcanic landscape.
