Do you want a catamaran cruise to the Galapagos Islands for a good price? On our website you can find all the information that you need to organize your trip to the incredible Galapagos Islands, a natural sanctuary where the flora and fauna is incredible.
We can usually recognize two large seasons. From December to June it is known as the Hot Season. And the second climatic season that goes from June to November called Dry Season. The best time to take advantage of Galapagos is the transition months. It is important to say that every month is valid to visit the islands; there is no time when the weather of the archipelago is bad or you don´t find wonderful flora and fauna to know.
Having two extreme weather seasons, which mark the beginning or the end of reproduction for most species, there are months in which the two seasons can be seen at the same time. There is a change between the hot season and the dry season, and later a transition between the dry season and the hot season (November to January).

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.
