San Juan Bautista

Introducing San Juan Bautista

The sole town on Isla Robinson Crusoe, San Juan Bautista (St John the Baptist) is the proverbial sleepy fishing village, down to the lobster catchers in knitted caps, and dusty stores that run out of cheese and beer before the provisions ship arrives. The village's steep hills are strewn with lush gardens and modest cottages with paths leading into horse pastures and wooded hiking trails. Sadly, the town's landmark lighthouse and cemetery were destroyed in the earthquake.
