Puerto Baquerizo Moreno (San Cristobal's main port) is the provincial capital and seat of local government - It features the province's best hospital, an airport right on the edge of town and the archipelago's only naturally occurring fresh water. At the same time it is unspoilt, with crystal clear waters and public access along the entire waterfront.
San Cristobal offers the archipelago's best surf, all the best offshore fishing banks and the best diving south of Darwin and Wolf islands (which are 200 miles north and accessible only by cruise).
Year Purchased: 2006

Sean was raised in various parts of Africa while schooling in England. Sean is a professional Civil Engineer and has spent over 35 years in construction, including 25 years in Canada, the last 15 of which have been in his own consulting business.
