Declared a World Heritage Site, the archipelago is almost completely a National Park, totaling thirteen islands of volcanic origin and more than a hundred islets and rocky outcrops. Thousands of people travel each season to observe a natural spectacle without comparison, because many species of the Galapagos Islands do not live anywhere else, so we must travel to this place to see them. By the way, it is a shocking experience that many people change their lives, discovering the real beauty of nature at its best.
Although the islands are located on the equator, the temperature of the ocean varies widely between 78 and 28 degrees Celsius depending on the season. The climate is determined by the temperature of the sea currents, which generates microclimates that influence the particular habitats of each island.
