Exploration of Darwin's discoveries in the Galapagos Islands

Ecuador welcomes with Spanish colonial architecture, though chances are you’re here for the wildlife. Get in a snorkel with green sea turtles or a guided amble past blue-footed boobies, flamingos, penguins, and iguanas. Darwin’s famed giant tortoises watch over their natural habitat reminding you that this is an ancient world—for you to explore.

...it was beyond awesome! Oh my, it was incredible, a for-sure bucket list trip.

Seasonal Variations

With the Galapagos Islands middle-of-the-earth location, temperatures stay consistent month-to-month, making these islands a great warm weather destination at any time.

There is some variation in the two seasons. December to June is warmest and with the most rainfall in short, daily showers concentrated in upper elevations. July to November is the Garúa season—named for a mist that forms in the highlands, providing moisture but not much rain. Lucky for you, the giant tortoises roam about year round. See when your favorite animals are mating and nesting and pick the departure that matches your must-sees.
