Tourists flock from all over the world to Ecuador generally during the public holidays i.e. through June to September. Thus it tends to be the busiest period. The destinations lying near the coast are busiest between December and April.

Ecuador’s climate can change frequently due to the variation in altitude across the country. This adds variability in climate according to regions. The central Sierra region has the most constant climate whereas the regions like near coast and Amazonian lowlands have a rather wet equatorial climate. The further north you go, the colder it gets.

As Ecuador sits on the equator, it can be visited throughout the year. You just have to know how to choose the region. The country’s climate is divided mainly into two seasons: the rainy season and the dry season. Although the Andes can be visited throughout the year, the best time to go to the Amazon is between October and November, and for the Galapagos, between June and August.

For Mountain climbing, Ecuador's volcanoes make their own weather – the temperature on the slopes doesn’t reflect what’s happening on the summit. It may be hot, rainy or snowing. Because of this, there is no best or worst time to climb the mountains.

If you have budget constraints or are looking for heavy discounts, many operators and accommodations offer discounts from February to April (except for Easter) and in September, October and November. You can also leave booking until much later - so this may be the best time to visit Ecuador for disorganized travelers and can also find a suitable time to make your Ecuador & Galápagos Vacation Packages just a
