After the flight to Ecuador, most visitors head straight to Quito, one of the oldest cities in both North and South America. Bring an extra suitcase on your Ecuador flight – the highest active volcano in the world is in Quito and at the top is the one of the largest and most colourful open markets in South America. Guayaquil is the country’s most populous city. Some travellers who made the Ecuador flight to Guayaquil say it’s one of the more up-and-coming cities in South America. A walk along the river boardwalk, the Malecon 2000, treats travellers to new and stylish galleries, museums, and restaurants. For the adventurous traveller, hop an Ecuador flight to the jungle and take in one of the most diverse tropical rainforests in the world.
If your Ecuador flights only allow enough time to visit the Galapagos Islands, rest assured it’s an experience worth having. Formed five million years ago by volcanic eruptions the islands are home to some of the world’s most fascinating wildlife. Like most tourists, it’s likely that after a visit to the islands additional flights to Ecuador are in the near future.
Ecuador has many different little climates. At the coast you’ll deal with heat and humidity all year round. The rainy season lasts from December to May. When you’re in the mountains, you’ll get cooler the higher you get. In the Amazon, the weather is hot, humid and wet, but the Galapagos Islands are dry all year with an average temperature of 25 degrees.
Peak season for visiting mainland Ecuador is June through September and December through January. However, even in the rainy season, conditions are good and travel is still enjoyable. Quito especially is a year-round destination, though be prepared for temperatures to become chilly due to its altitude during the dry season, June through September.
The Galapagos Islands remain relatively dry even in the wet season, so are a good year-round destination. Official peak season is June through August and again December through January; though this is based more on holiday seasons of travellers arriving from the United States and Europe.
December through April is the rainiest season in the jungle.
