When to fly to Ecuador
The peak season for visiting the mainland is June to September and December to January. However, even in the rainy season, conditions are good and travel is still enjoyable. Quito especially is a year-round destination, though temperatures can be chilly due to its altitude during the dry season, June through September.
The Galapagos Islands remain relatively dry even in the wet season, so are another good year-round destination. Official peak season is June to August and again from December to January; though this is based more on holiday seasons of travellers arriving from North America and Europe rather than weather conditions.
December to April is the rainiest season in the jungle.
The second smallest country in the whole of South America, Ecuador is nonetheless packed full of things to see and do. Quito is the capital, and arrival point for all flights to Ecuador. One of the oldest cities in both North and South America, Quito is located on the slopes of Pichincha, an active volcano. From the peaks of the volcano, a spectacular array of landscape unfolds on all sides. To the west, the coastline on the Pacific Ocean is studded with appealing beaches. To the east, the Amazon rainforest and basin which takes up nearly half of the country. Running north to south are the Andes. The Galapagos Islands, situated 1,000km west of the mainland in the Pacific, are also part of the country. The islands are known for the array of wildlife that was chronicled by Darwin, perhaps most especially the tortoises. With such varied landscapes it is not hard to see why travellers keep booking flights to Ecuador to explore what the country has to offer.
Ecuador has many different little climates. At the coast you’ll deal with heat and humidity all year round. The rainy season lasts from December to May. When you’re in the mountains, you’ll get cooler the higher you get. In the Amazon, the weather is hot, humid and wet, but the Galapagos Islands are dry all year with an average temperature of 25 C.
