Just north of the town of Puerto Baquerizo Moreno are Cerro Tijeretas and Playa Carola. We will walk along a paved path that leads up to the mountain Cerro Tijeretas, where we have a beautiful panoramic view of the bay. It is also known for its their frigate birds and the magnificent frigate birds, resting in the trees at the top of the hill. We walk down to the protected bay below us and get a chance to snorkel. We continue on a network of hiking trails that lead us to Playa Carola. Once here we have time to discover the many sea lions that rests and live on this beach. Here we get really close to the totally relaxed sea lions. We can feel the connection with these magnificent animals. After a truly magnificent experience we slowly walk through town, back to our hotel.
