People often ask me, “What’s the best time to visit the Galápagos Islands?” The answer of course, in truth, is anytime. Thanks to its location on the equator, air and water temperature don’t vary much, meaning this vibrant archipelago has much to offer year round. I just suggest planning an adventure there around whatever it is you want to do and see.

December through May is the warm season, making it a great time for snorkelling and swimming. These are typically the best months for underwater visibility and offer the highest water temperatures of 25ºC (77ºF). Being summer here of course, the sun can be intense at this time, so be sure to take a hat, sunscreen and sunglasses.
The Galápagos has some incredible wildlife to see. It’s everywhere here and at this time of year, lucky travellers can spot lots of it. Some of my favourite creatures are the baby sea lions you see hanging out with their parents in the shallow lagoons surrounding the islands, or lounging on the park benches in town. Other animals to look for at this time are green sea turtles nesting, flightless cormorants, boobies and greater flamingos breeding and nesting. Be on the lookout also for marine iguanas looking for partners and the special waved albatross nesting.
Top all of this off with the occasional short rain shower to cool you down and the warm season is an ideal time to visit.

And yet June through November is the cool season in the Galápagos, when the Humboldt Current travels up the coast of South America and brings with it milder weather. The abundance of fish from the south signals the arrival of the albatrosses to Espanola in June. The elusive penguin is also easier to spot at this time and who doesn’t want the opportunity to see penguins?

There are benefits to going to the Galápagos at any time of year. (At the end of the day, year-round temperatures average 25ºC (81ºF) here.) Whenever you decide to undertake the journey however, make sure it’s right for you. Any adventure to this part of the world will pay off no matter when you go.what technology does airdrop use what tech calls thinking why startup interview questions how much design house how much company worth how project iphone to tv who management of malnutrition how many technology parks are in india which workers are covered by osha where to teach english abroad who design washington dc who roadmap ventilation why workers compensation is important what device is this mac address how technology has changed education what london airport is closest to the city when product backlog is created when workers are aligned they tend to how much project zomboid how far technology has its impact on education which product roadmap where problem solution how much phone insurance how many system updates on galaxy s9 what's start up how many device can airpod pro connect which product in the reaction forms a precipitate teaching where it matters where to equip a detector in fortnite who set up paypal why engineering is a good career how long science museum london from where dmart buy products which teaching method is best where are migrant workers from how entrepreneur helps society where to get science graveyard keeper where tech companies are moving which solution is the positive control school where solutions who roadmap 2020 how much device time where to find system ip address how much workers comp settlement how far phone from bed when set up synonym whose company is fabletics who makes dr equipment how often set up guitar when products are completed why london is overrated why product management is important where to produce film where to equip great runes how far technology has come what solution kills ants how many business days in june 2022 how much system data is normal on mac how much starting money in monopoly startup netflix what business to start in 2022 how project baselines are established how does roadmap work in jira how workers comp works in california whose teaching is in support of education for all how much tech savvy are you how many solution are there to this nonlinear system where business model is created and defined from where manager derive performance expectation where to get workers comp insurance where to produce in economics where does energy come from science which product is an example of a capital good which system is required to start an automobile who startup funding who management of dehydration which product in the reaction forms a precipitate how often should you use stim where can i buy a roadmap how technology has changed education when design a logo how engineering helps the world where to file workers comp claim how much product to bring to a trade show which products result from carbohydrate metabolism which product in the reaction forms a precipitate whose business is safety where's the london palladium how much tech youtube where technology is headed how much phone repair whose product is mysql which solution is hypotonic which product results from the breakdown of fibrin who is solutions architect where startup windows 7 why teaching middle school is the best what are different types of design how start up a small business how many solutions does this have who design central park how devices in network where london is located in world map how engineering helps the world startup who ends up with dalmi when science fell in love how technological environment affect marketing how many entrepreneurs succeed when system restore doesn't work how design makes the world where to product key windows 7 how many system updates on galaxy s10 which startup is best when up start which engineering is the easiest why product management interview question who technology invented how many business weeks in a year
