This is one of the best islands to see sea lions, blue-footed boobies, frigate birds, iguanas, lizards, all in one place. Easy walking, dry landing, open landscape, bring sunscreen.

We visited here as part of a week-long cruise and the place was great. We took a small Zodiac from the ship to skim along the coast. We saw sea lions, rays, sharks, turtles, boobies, herons, pelicans, frigate-birds and gulls in great quantities.
