Wildcard

Las Tijeretas Along the coast, directly opposite Leon Dormindo, is a beautiful protected cove and lookout point. One of the best snorkeling locations in the archipelago, it’s possible to come here independently without a guide. Here, you may swim with sea lions, sea turtles, and hundreds of different fishes. Bike or walk from Puerto Baquerizo Moreno on well-paved paths, and climb to the top of the hill, through a forest of palo santo trees, for a panoramic view.
