Visiting the Galápagos in January

Marine iguana

Visit Española Island to see land birds building their nests and marine iguana displaying their bright colours. You'll also be in with a chance of seeing sea turtle laying their eggs on shore.

January is the beginning of the rainy season in the Galápagos, with both water and air temperatures rising and staying warm until June. This is an ideal time for snorkelling.
