Best time to travel
On Galapagos, there is a hot and rainy season and a colder and rather dry season. There is no “best” time per se, as each period has its perks. The different species of animals also have their distinct mating and breeding seasons. Finally, there will be something special to admire all year round. Even during the “cold” season, the air and water temperature is still appropriate for beach and water activities on most days.
Depending on which type of activities you prefer and which animals you would like to get the chance to admire, we can provide you with support in finding the right time to travel. But even if you’re restricted in choosing the dates, we will most likely be able to find a solution that fits.
