Visit a stretch of coast well known for its resident sea lions at La Loberia. On this sandy beach animals organize into colonies, with around 30 females and their cubs surrounding the dominant male of the group. Watch the way they interact and listen to the inimitable noises they make, making sure to stay back and heed the advice of the wardens--sea lions tend to be very territorial. Other than the main residents, you'll find yellow warbles, frigate birds, and plenty of species of finch, as well as large marine iguanas.

Primeiramente, é preciso registrar que se pode fazer os passeios da Ilha de San Cristóbal por conta própria. Pequei um táxi para ir à loberia, a U$3. Creio que dá uns 3 km do porto, na área central.

I think it's about 3 kilometers from the harbor in the central area. You can combine it to collect you in combined time or wait for some taxi that is bringing passengers and return with it. Or, for the younger and/or prepared, return on foot. I know the amount of wolves varies every day or every hour. When I went there I found about 20 wolves in that hard life of yours, sunbathing, bathing in the sea, sunbathing....... I was about 1 hours sitting there, seeing the dynamics of animals. There's a lifeguard, a park ranger and police rounds. What surprised me is that, on ALL the beaches, some tiny, with a maximum of 100 meters of extension, there is a doctor, for any emergency. All of them. Very different from a country of Portuguese language that is close...... It must be said that on the other beaches I visited, in all of them there were marine wolves in large quantities.
