Ryerson loves traveling and is particularly fascinated by Ecuador, a small but extremely diverse country. 

when to visit EcuadorDue to Ecuador’s diverse geography, it has no universal winter and summer season. Instead, the country has a dry season and wet season. The wettest time of the year for most of Ecuador runs from January through May. Rain levels are particularly high in the Amazon, thus causing periodic flooding in the forest, road closures, and plenty of mosquitoes. Still, the mild temperatures in the forests between these months appeal to many tourists.

Meanwhile, Ecuador is driest between June and September. Since these months correspond with summer vacation in North America and Europe, flights, accommodations, and crowds usually increase during this time. There are also several festivals held between June and September that draw in even more crowds. Crowds are also high between October and December due to the many national holidays celebrated during these months.

During both Ecuador’s dry and wet season, weather in the highlands and the Galapagos vary a bit. Between January and May, the highlands still experience higher levels of rain but tend to be warmer. The same is true of the Galapagos and the water around the islands. Temperatures decrease between June and September. Along with cooler temperatures, the island’s less friendly waters keep many tourists away.
