And Beyond

The Galapagos Archipelago, situated roughly 600 miles west of the Ecuadorian coast, encompasses over 50 volcanic islands spread out over 2,700 square miles. It is estimated that the oldest island was created 2.4 million years ago. This harsh volcanic landscape was forbidding to early explorers. But after Charles Darwin’s historic visit in 1835, global appreciation for the biological, symbolic and aesthetic beauty of these islands has matured.

PanAmerican Travel Services offers a collection of multi-day excursions on yachts and ships. A minimum stay of four days is recommended. If you are interested in scuba, a seven-day visit is more appropriate. Contact our travel counselors for itineraries and pricing.

You can travel to Galapagos year-round. During the winter months (November through March), Galapagos’ equatorial climate is perfect, with average air temperatures in the 80’s and 90’s, little rainfall, and water temperatures in the 70’s. During the cool water season (April through October), air temperatures are in the 70’s and water temperatures average in the 60’s. However, these cool months are the height of the breeding season.
