Galapagos Part 3: A Week in San Cristobal

This post covers our last week in the Galapagos, on San Cristobal Island. We also spent two days in Puerto Ayora and five days on a Galapagos Cruise. You can read about those in Part 1 and Part 2.

A Week in Puerto Baquerizo Moreno, San Cristobal Island

Peter and I spent a week on San Cristobal Island, where our cruise ended, to completely decompress from all the moving and packing for our RTW trip. We did very little during the week, except hit up the beach and stare at the sea lions. Our week looked something like this:

We managed to squeeze in a few hikes and check out a few Darwin statues, of which the island had many.

We walked around the town, and wondered about all the unfinished homes, like the one pictured below. These unfinished homes can also be found in Quito. We were told people will build their homes level by level as they have the funds.


And after a full week and a half of sunshine and blue skies, we had a bunch of downpours on our last few days  on the islands. The intensity and speed of the storms were impressive; it would rain incredibly hard for a short period of time, and then (luckily) clear up enough for a beach visit.



  1. As a friend in Berlin said when our boule game was interrupted by rain, “We are not made of sugar!” Keep trekking!

    Sending LOVE,

    June & Ken

  2. Hi! I have Type1D and will be travelling to San Cristobal, Ecuador in a few days. Do you know if there is somewhere to get insulin on the island, just in case something happens to my own supply?

    Looks like you had an amazing time! Thanks 🙂

    1. Hi Leah,

      I know I missed your trip by this point, but I hope all worked out well!!!
