Puerto Baquerizo Moreno on Isla San Cristóbal has got a population of more than 5000 inhabitants and it is the second largest town on Galapagos Islands, only Puerto Ayora on Isla Santa Cruz is bigger.
I have not spent a lot of time in Puerto Baquerizo Moreno. We came here on the third day of the cruise with M/S Cachalote.

We got another opportunity to do that before dinner, when we came back from a visit to the breeding centre and El Junco Lagoon.
Puerto Baquerizo Moreno seems to be a pleasant town to spend some time in. Around Avenida Charles Darwin, the street facing the sea, and the malecon, looks clean and tidy and here you find several hotels, restaurants, souvenir shops and travel agencies. There is also an Internet place.
Maybe I should have come here too for a few days after the cruise. There seem to be plenty of things to do just outside the town. There is a Galapagos National Park Interpreter Centre with exhibitions about the natural history and biodiversity of Galapagos Islands. There are some walking trails leading to small beaches and good snorkelling spots. One trail will take you up on Frigate Bird Hill (Cerro de las Tijeretas) were you can see frigate birds. Following the trails will also give you good opportunities to see sea lions and land iguanas. And surfing and diving is said to be good near Puerto Baquerizo Moreno.
