4 people from our tour group took a taxi from San Cristobal to here and shared the cost. The taxi waited for us while we hiked up the volcano - easy trek . Beautiful crater lake at top with many frigate birds flying over it...More
The moderately strenuous hike up the flanks of an extinct volcano are well worth the experience. The crater is now filled with fresh water and is the source of a stream fresh water descending to that supplies the needs of San Cristobal residents. The birds...More
This lake is beautiful and mysterious (it's like there shouldn't be a lake up there, but there is). It's often foggy but I think that adds to the mystery of it. When we were there, we saw many frigates swimming in and out of the...More

From the parking is a 10 mins hike, and we walked around the lake in about...More

We rented a taxi and visited this fresh water lake, 700 m above sea level. There are spectacular panoramic views at the top. We were lucky as it was clear! We heard that often the crater lake is misted in and the views are limited...More
This has been my research site and so I am biased, but the lake is spectacular so long as it is not cloudy (then you can't even see that there is a lake). The only permanent freshwater lake in the islands. Great walk (easy) around...More
