Usually you can talk about two great seasons. From the month of December to June it is called Warm Season. And the second climatic season that goes from June to November that is known as the Dry Season. The best time to visit Galapagos is the transition months. However every month of the year is good to reach the islands, there is no time where the weather is unpleasant or you cannot see peculiar flora and fauna to observe. Because there are two climatic seasons so different from each other, which indicate the beginning or end of reproduction for most species, there are some months in which the two stages can be witnessed at the same time. There is a change between the hot season and the dry season (April to June), and later a transition between the dry season and the hot season (November to January).

North Seymour Islet: Covered with low vegetation and dense, is notable for its almost immaculate state of nature, something that is more difficult to find in larger islands. The tour is conducted based on a trail of 2 km in length that crosses it from end to end, route that allows crossing with frigates, land iguanas and sea lions.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.
