The Galapagos Islands, known throughout the world, are the product of successive volcanic eruptions. Due to particular location they have allowed the emergence of unique flora and fauna in the world, a wealth difficult to believe. For this reason they are one of the favorite places of all travelers who love wildlife.
Usually two large stations can be considered. From December to June it is called Hot Season. And the second climatic season that goes from June to November is called Dry Season. The best time to take advantage of the Galapagos Islands is the transition months. However every month of the year is valid to reach the islands, there is no month in which the weather is bad or you cannot see peculiar flora and fauna to know.
When there are two seasons so different from each other, those that signal the beginning or the end of mating for the vast majority of species, there are months in which both phases can be seen at the same time. There is a transition between the hot season and the dry season (April to June), and later a transition between the dry season and the hot season (November to January).
