 WHEN TO GO
The high season in the Galapagos is mid-June to end-August, December to mid-January and around Easter Week. But these tourist periods are dictated more by vacation opportunities than by climate. In fact, the warmest months are December to April. If you like snorkeling or diving these two months are the most pleasant time of year to visit. The water is warm, the sea is calm and the air tends to be clear, even though this is theoretically wet season. In May the sea is still calm, but getting cooler. By July the weather has become almost cold, and snorkeling isnít pleasant without a wetsuit. In August the sea tends to be rough and the weather becomes misty until October. The coldest month is September, when many boats stay in dock and many Galapaguenos go on vacation. The weather in the Galapagos is just as fickle as it is in most other places in the world and you can be lucky or unlucky any time of year.
