The Ecuador connectivity to travel from all over the world has been increasing during the last years, due to this reason the number of visitors to the Archipelago also has increased making the peak months of the year April, July, August and December, when the crowds of tourists tend to be larger. If you want to visit during slower months of September and October may be just what you’re looking for and may offer you greater availability.

Since the Galapagos Cruises run all year long you can choose any month you might like.
