April or May?

We are planning a trip for either April or May of 2013 but with all we've read the times are pretty much even in terms or pros and cons; our primary ingterest is the wildlife. Any suggestions? We will sail on the m/v Galapagos Legend....assuming we choose this tour.

Dear Stacey,

all else being equal, May should be a bit less hot (March/April are the warmest months). But both months are my favourite in the islands. So, do whatever fits your schedule best.

Warmest regards,

I will considerate May to be the best time of the year for Galapagos, the weather is great, is the changing of the currents from warm to cooler, not to hot like April but still see allot of wild life everywhere.
