The best weather of the world lies in Ecuador
The weather in Ecuador has been considered one of the best in the world since Ecuador is a gem of a country that has a lot to offer for expats and tourists alike. The country sits right on the equator, which means that the Ecuador climate benefits from a glorious twelve hours of daily sunshine all year round.
However, the weather varies from region to region. As a rule the temperature usually varies according to the altitude. The farther up the mountains you go the cooler the air.
The climate you will experience depends largely on where you are in Ecuador, since there are four distinct geographical areas; the Coast, the Andes, the Amazon and the Galapagos Islands.
The Ecuadorian coast has a wet tropical seasonal climate, with a rainy season from May through December. The rest of the year is cooler and dry.
The hottest month is March when the average maximum temperature is 29°, average temperature is 26° and average minimum temperature is 24.
The High Altitude Andes
Ecuador’s Andes region runs straight down the middle of the country. High altitude cities tend to have cool, spring-like weather. It rains from time to time, mostly from October to May.
Day time temps go up into the seventies Fahrenheit (22º C). The evenings are cooler (45º F/7º C) and you’ll want a sweater or light jacket when wandering around town.
The Ecuador climate in the Amazon region doesn’t really have rainy and dry seasons. Rain and sun are common almost every day. Deeper into the jungle the climate changes to even hotter and even more rain.
August and December through March have less rainfall, but it still rains regularly. Temperatures run in the upper seventies (25º C) during the day. It can get very humid and hot during periods without rain. Nights are cool and comfortable, especially when rain falls in the afternoon or at night.
The Galapagos Islands
The Galapagos Islands also have a rainy and dry season. The dry season from June to December is cool and misty.
The ocean water is also cooler during this time. While the wet season is sunny, warm and only occasionally wet.
