WHEN IS THE BEST TIME TO GO TO GALAPAGOS?
The Galapagos Islands are considered to be a great year-round travel destination, so there is no “best time” to go to Galapagos, or best month to travel. But there are subtle monthly differences to consider when planning, or preparing for, your Galapagos vacation.
If you are looking for a summary of Galapagos climate across the year, then our general Galapagos Weather blog is for you.
Otherwise, read on for everything you need to know about Galapagos weather and wildlife in the month of FEBRUARY.
WHAT TO EXPECT AT GALAPAGOS IN FEBRUARY?
February is in the WARM & WET Galapagos season, so expect plenty of sun, with occasional heavy showers. Sunblock, a hat, and sunglasses are a must.
In WARM & WET months like February, the island highlands are lush and green, perfect for the land species such as the Giant Tortoise, Land Iguanas, Darwin Finches & other land birds, who find food plentiful.
Don’t worry, the marine Galapagos species are also easily spotted in February, even though the warmer seas mean fewer nutrients for them.
February sees REGULAR demand for cruise spaces throughout the month. The one exception is Carnaval public holiday weekend, which often falls during this month when demand from Ecuadorian travelers is very high and Galapagos flight spaces may be full.
