 CLIMATE

Despite its location right on the equator, the Ecuadorean Andes region is generally cooler than most people would expect. The climate varies according to the altitude and the time of year. Quito, the capital city, is within 25 kms of the Equator, but its high altitude means that the climate is similar to springtime in England. The days are usually 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]. The rainy season is 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, with sunrise at about 6am and sunset around 6pm.
