Although the islands are located in Ecuador, the temperature of the ocean surface varies widely between 7 and 27 degrees Celsius throughout the year. Its climate is very influenced by the temperature of the underwater currents, which generates microclimates that vary the particular environments of the flora and fauna of each island.
The islands also undergo climate change and almost every month presents its own characteristics. The period from January to March are the hottest and wettest months, with March being the hottest month of the year. In the wet season plants abound, and the water temperature is ideal for marine sports. From July to September we observe less rain and the islands are drier, but cooler, the temperature of the water is low enough, being the perfect season to see aquatic life, since the animals have a preference for cold water.
