Generally it can be considered two large seasons. From December to June it is known as the Hot Season. And the second weather season that runs from June to November called Dry Season. The best time to take advantage of Galapagos is the transition months. It is important to say that every month of the year is valid to travel the islands, there is no time in which the climate is unpleasant or you cannot see flora and fauna peculiar to your visit.
Since there are two different seasons, which indicate the beginning or end of the mating for the vast majority of species, there are months in which the two seasons can be seen at the same time. There is a transition between the hot season and the dry season, and later a transition between the dry season and the hot season (November to January).
