The Galapagos Islands are an archipelago of volcanic islands in the Pacific Ocean. The Galapagos Islands were first discovered in 1535 and is one of the world’s last pristine environments. In an effort to preserve the islands as they were centuries ago, the Galapagos have been declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO. Due to their isolation and position on the equator the Galapagos can be visited all year round. There are two main seasons really, the ‘dry season’ June to December and the ‘warm season’ December to May.
