Although the islands are located in Ecuador, the temperature of the ocean surface is not constant, between 6 and 28 degrees depending on the time of year. The climate is influenced by the temperature of the surface and marine currents, which generates microclimates that vary the particular habitats of the flora and fauna of each island.
