The best time to visit the Galapagos Islands is the transition months. However any month of the year is good to visit the islands, there is no time when the climate of Galapagos is unpleasant or there is no wonderful flora and fauna to know.

There is a transition between the hot season and the dry season (April to June), and later another change between the dry season and the hot season (November to January).
