Flora and fauna of the Galapagos: beauty and landscapes united in an extraordinary mixture. Birthday to the Galapagos Islands March 2018.
The Galapagos Islands are a perfect destination for family groups looking to have an experience they will always remember. It is not a holiday but unique adventures in one of our ships that will allow you to know in detail the islands and islets of this place.
Although the islands are located on the equator, the sea temperature is not constant, between 7 and 28 degrees Celsius depending on the season. The climate is influenced by the temperature of the underwater currents, which generates microclimates that alter the particular habitats of each island. The islands in the same way have climatic changes and each season has its own characteristics.
The time span from January to March is the months with the highest temperature and humidity, March being the hottest month of the year. In the humid season plants abound, and the pleasant sea temperature is ideal for water sports. In the period from July to September there are lower precipitations and the islands are drier but cooler, the sea temperature is greatly reduced, but it is the perfect season to see the oceanic fauna, since the animals prefer the icy currents .
