Leon Dormido

This striking rock formation is an interesting view and a great place for kayaking or diving. These two rocks are located a couple hours off the western shore of San Cristobal. Jutting out of the water, these rocks stand vertically at hundreds of feet above the ocean divided by a small channel. Although there are no landing areas, this site is often visited for kayaking and scuba diving. Marine life spotted in this area includes turtles, sharks, octopi and reef fish.
