January to May: the sun shines and the drops start to fall
The best period to visit Galapagos is at the beginning of the year, from January to May, not only because of the weather, which is one of the most permanent periods through the entire year, but also because green turtles lay their eggs.
February, March and April: blossoming, breeding and nesting seasons
The weather is warm and the flowers start to blossom, so many land birds, tortoises and sea lions will breed or nest through these months. Are you addicted to beaches and all they mean? This is your period! Beaches are going to be hot spots for tourists to have a good time and refresh themselves on the crystalline waters of Galapagos.
June to November: cold winds and plankton
As the climate will be colder than ever, the sea will be plenty of food for some sea birds and penguins. This food is based on many nutrients and plankton, which will make an attractive view for those diving adventurers who prefer the cold underwater instead of the hot surfaces.
July: birds mate in Genovesa Island
In addition to these treats, short-eared owls and blue-footed boobies find the perfect time to mate in Genovesa, and there you can become a witness of their love!
August and September: cool season
Galapagos is still dry during these months, and it’s a good time to have a rest and observe how nature starts to change.
October to December: when the temperature rises
In October, temperature starts to rise until December, when giant tortoises find a great opportunity to hatch.
