When to visit the Galapagos?   Leave a comment


The Galapagos is visited all year round, but most people select the holiday / vacation periods (i.e., Christmas/New Year’s, Easter, summer holidays/vacations). These periods sell out up to one year in advance (or more!).

The warmest period (air & water temperatures) generally run from November through to April. The coldest (and generally has more turbulent seas) are generally September and October. February through to April are the most desirable months. During this period, the islands not only adopt an emerald-green color, and turn humid and balmy warm, but many species start reproducing now.

  • calmest waters;
  • the hottest period in Galapagos;
  • the islands are generally a lush green due to high humidity & scattered showers;
  • most animals are in the height of reproduction, courting and/or nesting;
  • Reproduction of land reptiles, as well as land birds.
