The Galapagos Islands, known throughout the world, are the result of continuous volcanic eruptions that continue to occur in the present. By their particular location they have allowed the emergence of flora and unique faunas in the world, of a wealth impossible to believe. For this reason they are one of the most sought after destinations for wildlife lovers.
Although the islands are located on the equator, the temperature of the sea varies widely between 78 and 28 degrees depending on the time of year. The climate is determined by surface temperature and sea currents, which creates microclimates that influence the particular environments of each island. The islands in the same way face climatic changes and almost every month maintains certain characteristics.
The period from January to March is the months with the highest temperature and humidity, March being the hottest month of all. In the wet season there are lots of plants, and the ocean temperature is perfect for water sports. From July to September there is less rain and islands are drier, but cooler, the sea temperature is greatly reduced, but it is the ideal season to witness more oceanic fauna, since the animals have a preference for icy 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.
Isabella Island: Even though is the largest island of all, it has a unique town corresponding to Villamil Port, a beautiful village in which there are numerous accommodations and whose atmosphere is notable for being rather more quiet than Ayora Port. Inside its main attractions stand out Punta Moreno, where live flamingos and many other types of birds, from where you have a beautiful view of Sierra Black, Blue Hill and the top of Fernandina Island. To discover other kinds of wildlife is a good idea to move to Urbina Bay, where there are iguanas, sea lions, cormorants, penguins and blue-footed boobies.
Natural Lookout “La Escalera” in Bartolome Island: A natural spectacle located at the top of a hill, at more than 100 meters of altitude, from where are one of the most popular postcards of the islands, composed by a narrow strip of sand separates by the ocean into two bays, with the coast of neighboring Santiago Island as background and a stone strut at one of its ends. 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.
Chinese Hat: Chinese Hat is a small island close to the southeast of the Santiago Island and whose extension is less than a 0.25 km2. It’s a recent volcanic cone. The traditional form of the Chinese hat can be seen clearly from the north side. In front of Chinese hat, on the rocky edge near to Santiago, you can see easily the galapagos penguins. A short 400m long trail passes through the cove, and steps from a colony of sea lions and iguanas that covering the horizon.
