Isla Lobos and San Cristobal

Isla Lobos is truly an island of sea lions. They are EVERYWHERE. You literally have to step over them to get anywhere. We are still excited to see them, but we have seen so many at this point that it's crazy. They are surprisingly loud and roll over and grumble if you disturb them. The pups are also everywhere, and are absolutely adorable when they cock their heads to the side and look at you. We are reminded however of how tough nature can be, as there are many orphaned pups. Our daughters cry when Jhover tells them that they will die as no other sea lion will adopt them.

At San Cristobal we visit the National Park Center and learn more about these fascinating islands. We spend the afternoon in Puerto Bazquiero Moreno and enjoy shopping and walking around the lazy town. We especially enjoy buying shirts that say "I love boobies", with a pair or blue feet underneath, for our nephews! A large male sea lion has claimed the steps as his and his lady's sleeping place and we have to find another way down to the water!
