When to go
The Galapagos is equatorial and so the temperatures don’t vary much. From December to June the humidity is high and average temperatures are between 26° and 30° C. There may be occasional showers, but the days are generally hot and sunny.
From June to November, you can expect cool winds, occasionally bringing with them a light misty-type drizzle.

About Galapagos Islands
The Galapagos Archipelago is the cradle of Charles Darwin's observations and conclusions to his theory of evolution. Here fauna demonstrates no fear or timidity towards the presence of humans. Due to its distance from the continent, and because it was never attached to it, the existent flora and fauna evolved extraordinarily and what they are today has reminded unchanged. 97% of the total surface area of the islands constitutes the Galapagos National Park, with the exception of the inhabited areas of Santa Cruz, San Cristobal, Isabela, Floreana and Isla Baltra. Cruises are the best way to see these enchanting islands. Fly to Galapagos from Quito/Guayaquil and land at Baltra Airport or San Cristobal where most cruises start from. On most of the Islands, visitors can partake in snorkelling, diving and fishing.
There are two types of accommodation in Galapagos, boat cruises or hotel based tours. We feel that the best way to experience the islands of Galapagos is to opt for a five- to seven-day cruise itinerary followed by at least two or three nights of land-based accommodations.
