As Charles Darwin’s inspiration for the theory of evolution, these remote islands are globally unique. They are located on the equator1000km of the western coast of Ecuador in South America. The human impact on the islands has been kept to a minimum through protection schemes that have been put in place and hence their unique beauty has been maintained. The are 13 large islands and 6 smaller islands, the most well known being Isla Bartolome, Isla Fernandina and Isla San Cristobel. The extreme diversity and remote location of theses islands make the perfect honeymoon spot for the adventurous couple looking to escape everyday life.
The weather in the Galapagos Islands is highly changeable at any point. One moment it may be bright sunshine, the next it is heavy amazonian rainfall. The coastal regions are generally warmer with heavy rainfall, however as you go onto high land the temperature quickly falls. The average temperature between December and May is 27C, June and September is 17C and between October and December is 20C.
There are no direct international flights to The Galapagos Islands. To travel to the islands you can take a flight to Ecuador and then fly on from there to the Islands. This is a means to control the travel to the Islands to minimise damage to the natural enviroment and biodiversity of the region.
