A Tropical Environment

Since the Galapagos Islands are located on the Equator, residents and visitors enjoy a tropical climate of temperatures in the upper 60s to the 80s year-round.  The islands have two seasons: January to April is the warm/wet season (March is the hottest month of the year, making it an ideal time for snorkelnig and diving in the warm waters) and May to December is the cool/dry season. Many sea creatures are present during the cooler season because of the cooler water temperatures.  December to May is a great season to visit the island because of the warm, pleasant temperature and calm winds.
