We can recognize two great seasons. The first season that goes from December to June is called Hot Season. And the second climatic season that goes from June to November called Dry Season. The best time to visit Galapagos is the transition months. But any month is good to visit the islands, there is no time in which the weather is unbearable or you cannot see interesting flora and fauna to observe. As there are two seasons so different from each other, those that indicate the beginning or the end of mating for the vast majority of species, there are some months in which the two phases can be evidenced at the same time. There is a change between the hot season and the dry season, and then a transition between the dry season and the hot season (November to January).

Santa Cruz Island: Thanks to its location in the center and its proximity to the Baltra airport, is one of best known Galapagos tourist places, housing the city with the largest population of all, from where they leave the most of the boats visiting other islands and islets. One of its biggest tourist attractions is The Station Scientific Darwin, a center of scientific research open to the visitors, where is possible observe terrestrial lizards and turtles of big magnitude. Another site that highlights in Santa Cruz Island corresponds to Turtle Bay, paradise white sands beach and crystal clear waters, to the coasts arrived hundreds of turtles to lay their eggs.
Isabella Island: Even though is the largest island of all, it has a unique town corresponding to Villamil Port, a beautiful village in which there are numerous accommodations and whose atmosphere is notable for being rather more quiet than Ayora Port. Inside its main attractions stand out Punta Moreno, where live flamingos and many other types of birds, from where you have a beautiful view of Sierra Black, Blue Hill and the top of Fernandina Island. To discover other kinds of wildlife is a good idea to move to Urbina Bay, where there are iguanas, sea lions, cormorants, penguins and blue-footed boobies.
Natural Lookout “La Escalera” in Bartolome Island: A natural spectacle located at the top of a hill, at more than 100 meters of altitude, from where are one of the most popular postcards of the islands, composed by a narrow strip of sand separates by the ocean into two bays, with the coast of neighboring Santiago Island as background and a stone strut at one of its ends. After enjoying the views, it is possible to go down to the beautiful beaches, where it is possible to do surface diving and snorkeling. The two most important species of Bartolome are the sea turtles, which choose this place to spawn and the Galapagos penguins.
Dragon Hill: It has its name because to for a long time, was one of the few places in the Santa Cruz Island where were land iguanas in healthy state. This place was part of varied efforts to maintain the colonies of iguanas, in order to ensure their reproduction. At present there are no dogs in Dragon Hill, although the Galapagos National Park carries out a lot of controls of other animals that can be dangerous. In the beautiful lagoons present in this site, there is shrimp (Artemia salina), the same as the food of the flamingos. At certain times of the year there is more abundance and therefore the quantity of these birds is larger. In times with many precipitations the water becomes too sweet and therefore the population of crustaceans is smaller, which has consequences on the amount of flamingos. Dragon Hill has been open to the general public since 1993. The beach has rocky formations. At high tide it is an excellent sector to do surface diving.
