Best time to visit Ecuador & The Galapagos Islands | Weather in Ecuador & The Galapagos
Ecuador lends itself to year-round exploration, with weather variations usually the result of regional differences and micro-climates rather than clearly defined seasons. In the highlands, for example, although there is a drier season from June to September, the ‘four seasons in a day’ phenomenon can happen at any time, so you should not limit your travel planning to just one time of year. The country’s cultural attractions can be enjoyed at any time, as can hiking or more gentle touring in the Avenue of the Volcanoes. Similarly, the wildlife of mainland Ecuador can be enjoyed year-round, with the Amazon and the cloudforests delighting visitors whatever the season.
