Off the coast of San Cristobal Island is a huge pinnacle rock called Kicker Rock or Leon Dormido. This is the view from Mirador de la Soledad
And from the water
Divers and snorkelers come out here to swim with sea lions and reef sharks, occasionally hammerhead sharks show up, you can also see eagle rays and octopus.
Can you see the snorkelers?
How about now?
We swam with sharks!
I’m slightly more excited about that than Jules…
Charming little beach town
with one main drag
that’s overrun with sea lions. In the plaza
On the benches
With the cutest faces!
There are picturesque boats
and tour groups!
While you’re there, go to Calypso and try the pescado encocada (fish cooked in coconut milk and served with fried plantains), snorkel or dive at Kicker Rock and take a trip to Mirador de la Soledad to take in the view.
