Discover the Charles Darwin Research Station, Tortuga Bay, Seymour Island and many other incredible places in the Galapagos Islands. Cruises to the Galapagos Islands for 5 people July 2018
The Galapagos Islands, known throughout the world, are the product of countless eruptions of underwater volcanoes. Due to their unique location they have developed unique animal and vegetable species in the world, a beauty and variety that is impossible to believe. This is why they are one of the favorite destinations of all tourists who love wildlife.
Usually you can talk about two seasons. From the month of December to June it is called Hot Season. And the second climatic station that goes from June to November called Dry Season. The best times to take advantage of the Galapagos Islands are the months of transition.
However, any month is valid to reach the islands, there is no time in which the climate of the archipelago is unpleasant or there is no wonderful flora and fauna to observe. By having two distinct seasons, which indicate the beginning or end of mating for the vast majority of species, there are some months in which both phases can be seen at the same time. There will be a change 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).

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.
La Lobería on San Cristobal: One of the most visited places in the Galapagos is this beautiful beach of coral sand and crystalline waters, named after the large number of sea lions that can be seen every day, lying between the rocks or plunging into the sea. In addition to sea lions, turtles and sea iguanas are frequent on the beach, as well as several species of birds, such as the Maria canary, frigates and various kinds of finches. It is also possible to snorkel and if you have good fortune to swim with a sea lion.
Santa Fe Island: Uninhabited island by the man, known for beaches of calm waters in the Barrington Bay, where you can walk in both arenas where sea lions abound like diving snorkeling surface. If you like animals, you can see giant land iguanas, unique animals of this island, which reach up to a meter in length.
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. Daphne Mayor is located at the north of Santa Cruz. It is formed by a crater of lava, has no trees and very little vegetation and the edge is 120 meters above sea level. There are many breeding birds that go to raise their chicks in the environment near to the crater. Although easily accessible to visitors, the Park Service does not allow many visits to this island and are mostly dedicated to scientific research.
