When to go to the Galapagos Islands

How are the Galapagos in...

There is no “wrong” time to visit Galapagos: different times of the year have different things to see and do.

The birds, tortoises and dazzling marine life are always there, waiting for their photos to be taken.

Its geographical location, right on the equator, makes the temperature variation minimum through the year. Rains will be present from July to November, nevertheless, these are not strong enough to be a limitation for an excursion.

Galapagos World Map

 

The amount of rain and little temperature variations mark the seasons in Galapagos.

In each season, diving conditions or the animal behavior will vary from month to month; for example, in August the Galapagos penguins migrate to the central islands because of cold temperatures. As the penguins, many other animal behaviors will depend on the month of the year. The Galapagos is a pulsating archipelago offering a diverse environment for animal mating and reproduction cycles, migration habits, as well as hatching conditions.

Final considerations

 

Prices: There is not really a low or high season in Galapagos, it all depends on what you are more interested in seeing. Nevertheless, some hotel and cruises may have a price difference between some times of the year. Still, Galapagos Travel Center, along with its team of Ecuador & Galapagos experts will always look for the best deal on any boat or hotel-based tour category.

Never crowded: The Galapagos Islands as a protected National Park has very strict regulations about the number of tourists and schedules for being on a visitor site; these regulations besides from preventing the animals from being overstressed, allow tourist to have a more relaxed and personal sight at each visitor site.
