The Best time to go to the Galapagos islands
The best time to go to the Galapagos Islands is between December and June.
The islands of the Galapagos straddle the equator in the Pacific Ocean, and as with most destinations here at 0° latitude, the archipelago does not experience any particularly drastic changes in climate throughout the year. That said, there are two distinct seasons here, and although the differences between them are less pronounced than in many other places, it is worth bearing this in mind when planning your Galapagos safari.
Many activities in the Galapagos can be enjoyed year-round, but some months can be better than others due to cooler temperatures or calmer seas, for example. In addition, many animals will abide by predictable behaviour patterns, so if you're looking to see avian courtship rituals or nesting sea turtles, you will want to travel at a particular time of year. Take a look through this page, and our month-by-month breakdown, to find out when the Galapagos is best for you.
