Galapagos Islands, Ecuador

April is the ideal month to visit the Galapagos Islands. As the rains subside, the waved albatross arrive in ever increasing numbers. Land iguana and sea turtle eggs begin to hatch and the water clarity makes for excellent snorkelling. May sees the blue-footed boobies begin their eye-catching mating displays. There is never a bad time to visit the Galapagos. Timing your visit depends on what you would like to see or do.
