Temperature of Galapagos


What is the Average Temperature of Isabela and the rest of the Islands in Galapagos During the Year?

Your Answer

In general there are Two Seasons in the Galapagos Islands.

The Hot Season tha goes from December to May when humidity is high and average temperatures are in the 80s F.

And the Dry Season from June to November. The days are generally hot and sunny with occasional showers.

Galapagos climate is quite different than any other tropical destination you can possibly imagine.

For the Galapagos Islands, the ocean is an oasis of life in the middle of the Pacific Ocean.

All Galapagos vegetation that developed during the Hot Season (December-May) has started to dry up and it has produced seeds that will allow them to propagate efficiently.

Many plants generate hard seeds which survive well in dry environments, and give them high-dispersal ability. Other plants develop soft seeds which shall germinate somewhat quickly in order to catch the best soil conditions in time.

Finally, other species will develop seeds that will remain idle until the arrival of next year's Hot Season.

All animal life responds to these conditions too, making this tropical location of the Galapagos Islands the only one on Earth that goes through these extreme conditions.

The privilege to enjoy Galapagos climate (year round) and the value of visiting the Islands is reserved for those who dreamed about coming here.
