The Galapagos Islands are located on the equator, but the tropical heat is tempered by Pacific Ocean breezes. There are two seasons on the islands: December to May – the rainy, hot season – when humidity is high, average temperatures are in the 80’s F (26°-30° C), and there may be occasional showers, but the days are generally sunny; June to November, when you can expect cool winds, occasionally bringing with them a light misty-type drizzle called “garúa”, and temperatures average in the 70’s F (20°-24° C) during the day and lower at night.
Average monthly temperatures (°F), rainfall (inches), and water temperature (°F) are shown below.
