Good to Know

 

What’s the weather like?

The weather and temperatures generally vary according to region and altitude.. Quito’s climate is spring-like year round. It’s sunny and quite hot during the day, but it may be cold at night. You will need cold weather gear for high altitude hiking and mountain climbing. In the coast and in the rainforest, temperatures are warmer. Generally, the country has two main seasons: the dry season (May to December) and the rainy season (late December through April).

Getting There:

Quito and Guayaquil international airports receive direct flights from a relatively small number of destinations outside of Latin America. From the USA, flights leave from Miami, Atlanta and Houston. If you are coming from Europe, they leave from Madrid and Amsterdam.

Best time to visit:

December and January are considered the best months to climb, followed by June and August, the dry summer months. However, many mountains, like Cotopaxi, are quite climbable all year long. You should note in Ecuador snow and glacier conditions are highly variable, therefore technical difficulty may change from day to day. The best time to visit the Galapagos Island is from April to June.If you are planning a visit to the beach, you should go from December to April, during the rainy season, when it is much warmer and sunny.

Had an amazing time with my guide Ramiro. He selected the perfect mix of mountains in order to properly acclimatize so I could achieve the summit of Cayambe. With his vast experience of more than three decades he was able to teach me a lot of skills and know-how along the way so I’d always feel safe on the mountains. I can only recommend a trip with Ramiro. You’re definitely in good hands and going to make wonderful experiences.
