Due to Ecuador’s privileged location, Quito specifically has a subtropical highland climate, There are only two seasons in the city: dry and wet. The dry season, which last 4 months and is considered summer,runs from June to Sept. Where you can feel the highest temperatures. And the wet season, winter which last the rest of the year, is from October to May with prolonged rains during certain months. Quito is most characterized to have a constant temperature from 50 to 80°F.

Ecuador’s capital, Quito, lies in the Central Valley between the Andean Mountains’ eastern and western ridges. The equator is less than 20 miles north of the city, yet at an altitude of 9,350 feet (2,900 meters), Quito’s climate is spring-like year around.

The sun makes the difference. You can comfortably stroll out on a glorious Quito afternoon in shorts and a T-shirt, but you’ll need to take your wool sweater in case the weather changes.
