   CLIMATE IN ECUADOR
Temperatures in Ecuador depend on the altitude. The weather is generally mild and does not present difficulties for travellers.
Rather than rotating through four seasons, most of Ecuador experiences oscillating wet and dry periods. The general weather trends for each region are as follows:

Andean Highlands |La Sierra|
Though on the equator, is generally cooler than most people would expect. The climate in the Andes varies according to the altitude and the time of the year. Quito, the capital city, is within 25 kms. of the Equator, but it stands high enough to make it's climate much like that of spring in England, the days warm or hot and the nights cool. In Quito the temperature ranges from 7°C [55°F] at night, to 26°C [78°F] at noon, averaging 15°C [64°F]. Rainy season from October to may with the heaviest rainfall in April. Rain usually falls in the afternoon. The day length [sunrise to sunset] is almost constant throughout the year. In the Ecuadorian rainforest you should expect high temperatures and high humidity.
