Tour Lobos Island from San Cristobal

1 review
After a scenic boat ride to the small island, enjoy an in depth land tour which takes you past numerous sea lions, frigates, marine iguanas, and more. Later, explore the underwater world surrounding the island with possible stingray and sea turtle sightings. Enjoy a filling lunch before your return to San Cristobal.

My partner and I visited El Ceibo on the Highland Tour of San Cristobal. It is a huge tree house in a very old tree and there is also a boat in the next tree along which has been converted into a room. On the ground there is a cafe selling homemade ice cream and cakes and Galapagos grown coffee. The grounds have ornaments which have also been homemade which gives the place a very authentic feel. During our visit we decided to book a night in the boat room which was an excellent experience. It is fully equipped with toilet, running water and the warmest shower we had in the Galapagos which is impressive considering it's up a tree! If you do stay here it's worth noting that the cafe doesn't sell meals (or at least it doesn't on a Tuesday, the day we visited) and there weren't any open restaurants in the town of El Progresso so we had to pop back to the main port for food (easily done by hailing a taxi from the nearest bus stop for between $1-$4). Overall we enjoyed our visit and our stay and would definitely recommend it to anyone visiting San Cristobal!

La Casa del Ceibo looks like it started out as tree-house for the kids that then became an obsession. The Ceibo tree itself is massive and very impressive. The tree house with a working toilet, is fun for the kids, but less so for adults. One unique feature of the site is a room underneath the tree, with a very narrow passage down. Being 6'3" and 240 lbs I did not go down but my much skinnier teenage daughter did. Beyond being impressive existentially, the fairly large underground room was otherwise not that interesting. La Case del Ceibo is worth a visit if it is on the way to somewhere else, unless one has small kids who love treehouses, in which case it would become a destination in its own right..

Impressive house build inside of a massive Ceibo. It is a quick stop that can be followed by a short visit to the bar where you can see different coins from different countries. Some different to do while in Galapagos.

For some reason this stupid thing is tacked on to the highland tour which visits El Junco, the tortoise breeding center and Puerto Chino beach. That ridiculous tree house thing, which is advertised on billboards all over town, was so bad and hoaky that it left us with a bad aftertaste after we had enjoyed all the other places on this outing. How did these people manage to get this crap onto the itinerary???? Simply terrible (if you're older than 10)

We loved this quirky, creative place. The huge kapok tree is beautiful and hosts two fun treehouses. Our teen giggled as a duck ate grain placed on her back, the ultimate Insta snap! And I bought a lovely blue-footed booby decoration for our Christmas tree while hubby had coffee and cake.
