Weather of the Galapagos Islands

Since the Galapagos Islands are on the equator weather does not vary as much as in the north or south of the tropics. Nevertheless, we could say we have two seasons. A rainy and hot (22 – 32°C) season from November until April and a dry and colder (15 – 25°C) season from May until October.The great weather of the Galapagos Islands makes them a fantastic destination for travel year-round. Every month of the year is a good time to enjoy a tour of the region.

The Galapagos Islands have a subtropical climate that is almost completely determined by sea currents. Although most believe the Galapagos to be a very hot destination, the cool water currents in the area keep the climate more temperate year-round. The islands’ equatorial location ensures twelve hours of sunlight daily, all year long.

The mild variations in weather from month to month result in an overall climate of warm days, cool nights and low humidity. Anytime is a great time to travel to the Galapagos; while visiting one can expect to see plenty of sunshine, blue skies and a possible chance of light rain.
