General Information - Weather




The weather is stable most of the year, although somewhat colder in the winter months from December to April. The weather in the mountains varies from east to west. The eastern mountains, especially Antisana, El Altar and Sangay, and to lesser extent Cayambe and Tungurahua are influenced by air from the Amazonian lowlands. The wettest months are June through August. December and January are the best for El Altar. February for climbing Antisana and October-January for Cayambe.

In the western mountains, the dry season is late June-September, with a short dry spell in December-January. The wettest months here are February-May. During the dry season temperatures tend to be very low at night and high winds can be a problem, particularly in August. The weather in October and November tends to be variable.

In the Galapagos Islands, in general, December-June are the warmest mounths, also the most lush and green at this time. July-November is the coolest time. In the Amazon region the climate is humid and warm with frequent rains (rain forest).

But remember the only thing predictable about Ecuador's weather is its unpredictability.
