Beyond doubt, the weather is the most popular topic of conversation. And for good reason. As Mark Twain noted, there is
always something going on, and the weather in the Galapagos is no exception. On the equator, it's mostly quite warm,
but the cool Humboldt current coming up the coast of South America exerts a significant influence on the local climate.
The weather is seasonal. It's warm and wet from November to March this is the El Niño season. Bad El Niño
years can severely affect fish populations, and hence seabird reproduction. In normal years, from April to October temperatures are
cool (for equatorial latitudes) and rain is rare.

"The weather is always doing something...; always attending strictly to business; always
getting up new designs and trying them on people to see how they will go."
Mark Twain, Speeches, 1876
