However any month is valid for touring the islands, there is no month in which the weather is bad or you do not find interesting flora and fauna to know. Since there are two seasons so different from each other, which mark the beginning or the end of mating for the great majority of species, there are months in which the two phases can be seen at the same time. There is a transition between the hot season and the dry season (April to June), and then a transition between the dry season and the hot season (November to January).

In the inside of the island at the top, you can visit the Chakras of Ritter and, to the South, the Haven of Peace.
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.
Punta Espinoza on Fernandina Island: Punta Espinoza is a fine lava and sand ledge that connects the Fernandina volcano with the sea, famous for its marine iguana population, whose high number sometimes makes it difficult to walk between them. They share the space with iguanas, penguins, sea lions, crabs and the non-flying cormorant, a species that can only be seen in Fernandina and Isabela, well known for being the only cormorant that has lost the ability to fly. The surrounding environment is made up of lava fields of the volcano, one of the most active in the world.
Dragon Hill: It has its name because to for a long time, was one of the few places in the Santa Cruz Island where were land iguanas in healthy state. This place was part of varied efforts to maintain the colonies of iguanas, in order to ensure their reproduction. At present there are no dogs in Dragon Hill, although the Galapagos National Park carries out a lot of controls of other animals that can be dangerous. In the beautiful lagoons present in this site, there is shrimp (Artemia salina), the same as the food of the flamingos. At certain times of the year there is more abundance and therefore the quantity of these birds is larger. In times with many precipitations the water becomes too sweet and therefore the population of crustaceans is smaller, which has consequences on the amount of flamingos. Dragon Hill has been open to the general public since 1993. The beach has rocky formations. At high tide it is an excellent sector to do surface diving.
