Being an equatorial country of equable climate there is no specific season that is better than any other in Ecuador – although it still has the wet and dry seasons typical of the continent. The main climate variations are based on the area of the country you are visiting more than the time of year.

The mountains are cooler and wetter, the coast hot and dry and the Amazonian region is high in humidity.

High tourist season for foreigners is June, July and August with a shorter season in December and January. The Costa remains busy between January and June however, when it is at its hottest, as the Ecuadorians tend to holiday in this interim. The Galapagos islands are warm year round, but the rainy season in the first three months of the year is less popular with visitors – although the islands are ironically at their lushest and arguably most beautiful during the latter part of this period.
