All the information of prices and panoramas to travel to Galapagos Islands Tour Packages to the Galapagos Islands January 2018
The Galapagos Islands are the result of continuous eruptions of submarine volcanoes that continue to occur today. Due to particular location they have developed unique animal and vegetal species in the world, of a beauty very difficult to describe. For this reason they are one of the most sought after destinations for all wildlife lovers.
Although the islands are located on the equator, the sea temperature varies enormously, between 7 and 28 degrees throughout the year. Its weather is very determined by the temperature of the sea currents, which creates microclimates that influence the particular habitats of the flora and fauna of each island.
The islands also have climatic changes and each season has its own peculiarities. The time spans from January to March are the hottest and rainiest months, with March being the warmest month of the year. In the humid season plants abound, and the water temperature is ideal for marine sports. From July to September we find less rain and the islands are less humid, but cooler, the temperature of the ocean is greatly reduced, being the ideal season to witness more sea fauna, since the animals have a preference for cold currents.

Ranchos of Santa Cruz: Although it is known that in several islands of Galapagos you can see breeding sectors of giant tortoises, there is no more advisable alternative, than to appreciate them in freedom, something that puts at our disposal ranchos and haciendas in the high zones of the island of Santa Cruz. Some of these places are El Chato, Manzanillo and Primicias, with paths that respect the environment, where you can easily see these exotic animals in their natural environment. It is important to emphasize that, during the period from June to August; turtles tend to move to the lowland of the island to nest, diminishing the possibility of observing them.

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.
Daphne Mayor: The Daphne Islands (Daphne Major and Minor) are two small islands of volcanic origin in the Galapagos Islands archipelago. The largest has an area of 0.39 km².
