Best time to visit the Galápagos Islands

The best time to visit the Galápagos Islands is during the warmer season (Dec – Jun). However, the islands are relatively dry all year round but between January and June temperatures are much hotter (30°C) and there are regular downpours. From July to December temperatures are cooler (22°C) and it is generally drier, but the seas are choppier, with poorer visibility so not ideal for diving.
