When to travel to Ecuador? Considering that Ecuador straddles the equator, the climate remains fairly consistent throughout the year with periods of peak rainfall and warmer temperatures. With that being said, you can visit Ecuador all year-round depending on where you would like to visit. If you are looking to enjoy the beaches, it is surprisingly best advised to come during the rainy season which runs from December to May when temperatures are warmer and mornings are typically sunny before the daily afternoon bursts of tropical rain. For those visitors who wish to hike the Andes, June through to November is the best time to go, as the weather is usually cooler and drier. The Amazon is accessible and recommended year round however your experience may vary by the time of year that you visit. The biggest difference being that during the wet season roads are often flooded over and boats become your main means of transportation. In the dry season from June to November, the roads are passable and wildlife are more active and visible.
