January Weather & When To Go
In January, green sea turtles start arrive to start laying eggs on the beaches, and the land birds are nesting.
The rainy season lasts from December to May and January sees an average of about two centimetres of rain for the month, usually drizzling for a short period of time each day before brightening up. This is one of the sunniest times of year in the Galapagos Islands. The temperature averages at about 28.8 degrees Celsius, so it is nice and warm, but not the up to the average 30 degrees Celsius that is needed to maintain coral, hence the unique underwater world of the Galapagos.
