Our travel specialists will collect payment and make reservations for all confirmed group members for these required internal flights. Because airfare prices can change without notice, all flight prices are subject to change.
Galapagos National Park Fee
The National Park Fee helps fund organizations that manage and preserve the islands.
During periods of peak demand, a holiday surcharge will be applied to the trip cost.
The Galapagos have two seasons. The warm and rainy season lasts from January to June, and the average air temperature ranges from the low 80s to the low 90s with the average water temperature around 75°. During this time, there are many warm, often hot, sunny periods interspersed by rain showers. From July to December, the cooler and dryer months, the average air temperature is in the 70s with an average water temperature hovering between 64-68°. There may be occasional mist and overcast skies due to the garúa (fog) that sometimes pervades the islands at this time of year. A sweater or jacket is often needed at night. Note that at any time of year, the higher elevations on the islands are often enveloped in mist and fog keeping them cooler and greener than areas near the shores.
Average daytime temperatures in and around Cusco and Machu Picchu generally range from 55°-75° F with Andean evenings cooling into the 40s and 50s. Weather in the mountains can change very quickly. During the months of May-October, days are typically clear and pleasant, with afternoon clouds occasionally building and leading to small amounts of precipitation. Rainfall is more common during the months of November-April, however all-day rain is unlikely.
