We landed by Zodiac from our small cruise ship, and walked the paths to the top of the trail. The steps at the start are quite steep, but worth it. Darwin Lake us great to see, and the trail continues well-marked. The views from the...More

We went on a relatively easy, modestly uphill hike, early in the morning, to get a nice view of a crater lake adjacent to the ocean. There was only one other boat in that area. It is important to go early to avoid the heat....More

Our guides from "the Letty", a yacht operated by Ecoventura, took us to Tagus Cove. The first thing you see when you get there is graffiti from the early 1800s, left by pirates and whalers who would anchor here. We then continued uphill on a...More

The hike up the hill isn't too bad. The view of the lake from the top is very nice. There were a lot of crabs on the rocks where we disembarked from the zodiac. We saw a few birds - mockingbirds and finches. This location...More

Going from the flat beach to 170 steep steps did leave me winded. Once we got to the trail I didn't find the hike difficult. However, I was pretty sweaty once I got to Darwin's Lake. The view was gorgeous. The most interesting part of...More
