I am a proud native of Ecuador with an insatiable passion for exploring the natural beauty and rich cultural diversity of my country and other destinations across South America and the world. My love for travel was sparked at a young age, thanks partly to the sport I practiced and the opportunity to live abroad for a year. Through these experiences, I have discovered countless new cultures and breathtaking locations, which have left a lasting impression on me. In particular, South America is a treasure trove of awe-inspiring natural wonders and diverse cultural traditions waiting to be explored and savored.

María José Ávalos

Destination Expert
I found my passion in Tourism and Hospitality at a young age. All of my trips inside and outside of Ecuador inspired me to pursue a professional degree in Tourism, where I learned the technical and theoretical aspects of the industry. This job allowed me to develop the ability to support clients in different stages of trip planning in an effective way. Usually, when I am not working, you can find me traveling and meeting new places. My favorite destination so far is The Galapagos Islands.

What is the weather like in Ecuador year-round?

Ecuador has two seasons: humid and dry. However, weather differs between the four regions (Coast, Highlands, the Galapagos Islands, and the Amazon). Usually, the Amazon and the coastal region are warmer and more humid, while the highlands are cooler at night and sunny during the day.

Ecuador has excellent weather all year, making it a great travel destination and a perfect place to visit anytime. Its location on the Equator helps stabilize the year-round temperature. Therefore, the country has two seasons: dry (from May to December) and wet (late December through April). Choosing when to visit Ecuador depends on what the adventurers want to do and where. The Andes highlands have spring-like conditions all year; the Amazon region is hot, humid, and wet year-round, and the coastal area can be dry and wet, depending on the month.   

Ecuador has two well-connected international airports: Mariscal Sucre International Airport (UIO) in Quito and José Joaquín de Olmedo International Airport (GYE) in Guayaquil. The airports offer daily flights to and from Europe and North and South America. They are also the gateway to the Galapagos Islands.   

Metropolitan Touring is Ecuador’s leading Destination Management Company (DMC). We have operations in the Galapagos Islands, Ecuador, Colombia, and Peru. We also manage expedition vessels and yachts – the Santa Cruz II, Isabela II, La Pinta, and Sea Lion – in the Galapagos, and Finch Bay Galapagos Hotel, the Mashpi Lodge, and Casa Gangotena Boutique Hotel in Ecuador mainland.   

The United States dollar is Ecuador’s official currency.

Packing to Ecuador can be tricky because the weather can change within minutes. However, there’s a general packing list:   

  • Lightweight, breathable clothing for warm coastal areas.   
  • Warmer layers for cooler highland regions like Quito or Cuenca.   
  • Waterproof jackets or ponchos for rain, especially in the Amazon and cloud forests.   
  • Comfortable walking shoes or hiking boots for exploring.   
  • Sunscreen, sunglasses, and a wide-brimmed hat for protection against the sun.   
  • Insect repellent for areas prone to mosquitoes, especially in the Amazon.   

Travel insurance isn’t a mandatory requirement for entering Ecuador. However, it’s highly recommended to have travel insurance that covers medical expenses, trip cancellations, lost luggage, and other unexpected incidents during your stay.
