When to go [edit]

Any time of year. There are two main seasons: dry but cool from May to September, and warm but rainy from September to May.

Though Galapagos Islands are located almost near the equator, cold ocean currents don't allow seawater to warm up to a comfortable temperature. Therefore Galapagos is not best place for a beach holiday.
