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 NOVEMBER.
WHAT TO EXPECT AT GALAPAGOS IN NOVEMBER?
November is in the COOL & DRY Galapagos season, so expect cloudy skies, cooler temperatures, and dry weather. Remember to use sun protection, as it is easy to burn even under cloudy skies close to the equator.
In COOL & DRY months like November, the island cooler seas are rich in nutrients, perfect for marine species like Sealions, Sea Turtles, and species of Seabird, who find food plentiful.
The highlands are bare. Don’t worry though, the land Galapagos species are still easily spotted in November, even though there is less green food available for them.
November sees LOW demand for cruise spaces.
